[CallEl,PutEl] = blslambda(Price,Strike,Rate,Time,Volatility,Yield)
Current price of the underlying asset.
Exercise price of the option.
Annualized, continuously compounded risk-free rate of return over the life of the option, expressed as a positive decimal number.
Time to expiration of the option, expressed in years.
Annualized asset price volatility (annualized standard deviation of the continuously compounded asset return), expressed as a positive decimal number.
(Optional) Annualized, continuously compounded yield
of the underlying asset over the life of the option, expressed as
a decimal number. (Default =
[CallEl,PutEl] = blslambda(Price,Strike,Rate,Time,Volatility,Yield) returns
the elasticity of an option.
CallEl is the call
option elasticity or leverage factor, and
the put option elasticity or leverage factor. Elasticity (the leverage of an option
position) measures the percent change in an option price per 1 percent
change in the underlying asset price.

This example shows how to find the Black-Scholes elasticity, or leverage, of an option position.
[CallEl, PutEl] = blslambda(50, 50, 0.12, 0.25, 0.3)
CallEl = 8.1274
PutEl = -8.6466
