Instrument prices from Cox-Ross-Rubinstein tree


[Price,PriceTree] = crrprice(CRRTree,InstSet,Options)



Stock price tree structure created by crrtree.


Variable containing a collection of NINST instruments. Instruments are categorized by type; each type can have different data fields. The stored data field is a row vector or character vector for each instrument. For more information about how to create the InstSet structure, see instadd.


(Optional) Derivatives pricing options structure created with derivset.


[Price,PriceTree] = crrprice(CRRTree,InstSet,Options) computes stock option prices using a CRR binomial tree created with crrtree.

Price is a number of instruments (NINST)-by-1 vector of prices for each instrument. The prices are computed by backward dynamic programming on the stock tree. If an instrument cannot be priced, NaN is returned.

PriceTree is a MATLAB® structure of trees containing vectors of instrument prices and a vector of observation times for each node.

PriceTree.PTree contains the prices.

PriceTree.tObs contains the observation times.

PriceTree.dObs contains the observation dates.

crrprice handles instrument types: 'Asian', 'Barrier', 'Compound', 'CBond', 'Lookback', 'OptStock'. See instadd to construct defined types.

Load the CRR tree and instruments from the data file deriv.mat. Price the barrier and lookback options contained in the instrument set.

load deriv.mat; 
CRRSubSet = instselect(CRRInstSet,'Type', ... 
{'Barrier', 'Lookback'});
