assetbybls

Determine price of asset-or-nothing digital options using Black-Scholes model

Syntax

Price = assetbybls(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike)

Arguments

RateSpec

The annualized continuously compounded rate term structure. For information on the interest rate specification, see intenvset.

StockSpec

Stock specification. See stockspec.

Settle

NINST-by-1 vector of settlement or trade dates.

Maturity

NINST-by-1 vector of maturity dates.

OptSpec

NINST-by-1 cell array of character vectors with values of 'call' or 'put'.

Strike

NINST-by-1 vector of payoff strike price values.

Description

Price = assetbybls(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike) computes asset-or-nothing option prices using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

Price is a NINST-by-1 vector of expected option prices.

Consider two asset-or-nothing put options on a nondividend paying stock with a strike of 95 and 93 and expiring on January 30, 2009. On November 3, 2008 the stock is trading at 97.50. Using this data, calculate the price of the asset-or-nothing put options if the risk-free rate is 4.5% and the volatility is 22%. First, create the RateSpec.

Settle = 'Nov-3-2008';
Maturity = 'Jan-30-2009';
Rates = 0.045;
Compounding = -1;
RateSpec = intenvset('ValuationDate', Settle, 'StartDates', Settle,...
'EndDates', Maturity, 'Rates', Rates, 'Compounding', Compounding)
RateSpec = struct with fields:
           FinObj: 'RateSpec'
      Compounding: -1
             Disc: 0.9893
            Rates: 0.0450
         EndTimes: 0.2391
       StartTimes: 0
         EndDates: 733803
       StartDates: 733715
    ValuationDate: 733715
            Basis: 0
     EndMonthRule: 1

Define the StockSpec.

AssetPrice = 97.50;
Sigma = .22;
StockSpec = stockspec(Sigma, AssetPrice)
StockSpec = struct with fields:
             FinObj: 'StockSpec'
              Sigma: 0.2200
         AssetPrice: 97.5000
       DividendType: []
    DividendAmounts: 0
    ExDividendDates: []

Define the put options.

OptSpec = {'put'};
Strike = [95;93];

Calculate the price.

Paon = assetbybls(RateSpec, StockSpec, Settle, Maturity, OptSpec, Strike)
Paon = 

   33.7666
   26.9662
