optstocksensbyrgw

Determine American call option prices or sensitivities using Roll-Geske-Whaley option pricing model

Syntax

PriceSens = optstocksensbyrgw(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike)
PriceSens = optstocksensbyrgw(___,Name,Value)

Description

example

PriceSens = optstocksensbyrgw(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike) computes American call option prices or sensitivities using the Roll-Geske-Whaley option pricing model.

Note

optstocksensbyrgw computes prices of American calls with a single cash dividend using the Roll-Geske-Whaley option pricing model. All sensitivities are evaluated by computing a discrete approximation of the partial derivative. This means that the option is revalued with a fractional change for each relevant parameter, and the change in the option value divided by the increment, is the approximated sensitivity value.

example

PriceSens = optstocksensbyrgw(___,Name,Value) adds an optional name-value pair argument for OutSpec.

This example shows how to compute American call option prices and sensitivities using the Roll-Geske-Whaley option pricing model. Consider an American stock option with an exercise price of $82 on January 1, 2008 that expires on May 1, 2008. Assume the underlying stock pays dividends of $4 on April 1, 2008. The stock is trading at $80 and has a volatility of 30% per annum. The risk-free rate is 6% per annum. Using this data, calculate the price and the value of delta and gamma of the American call using the Roll-Geske-Whaley option pricing model.

AssetPrice = 80;
Settle = 'Jan-01-2008';
Maturity = 'May-01-2008';
Strike = 82;
Rate = 0.06;
Sigma  = 0.3;
DivAmount = 4;
DivDate = 'Apr-01-2008';

% define the RateSpec and StockSpec
StockSpec = stockspec(Sigma, AssetPrice, {'cash'}, DivAmount, DivDate);

RateSpec = intenvset('ValuationDate', Settle, 'StartDates', Settle,...
'EndDates', Maturity, 'Rates', Rate, 'Compounding', -1, 'Basis', 1);

% define the OutSpec
OutSpec = {'Price', 'Delta', 'Gamma'};

[Price, Delta, Gamma]  = optstocksensbyrgw(RateSpec, StockSpec, Settle,...
Maturity, Strike,'OutSpec', OutSpec)
Price = 4.3860
Delta = 0.5022
Gamma = 0.0336

Input Arguments

collapse all

Interest-rate term structure (annualized and continuously compounded), specified by the RateSpec obtained from intenvset. For information on the interest-rate specification, see intenvset.

Data Types: struct

Stock specification for the underlying asset. For information on the stock specification, see stockspec.

stockspec handles several types of underlying assets. For example, for physical commodities the price is StockSpec.Asset, the volatility is StockSpec.Sigma, and the convenience yield is StockSpec.DividendAmounts.

Data Types: struct

Settlement or trade date, specified as serial date number or date character vector using a NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double | char

Maturity date for option, specified as serial date number or date character vector using a NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double | char

Definition of the option as 'call' or 'put', specified as a NINST-by-1 cell array of character vectors with values 'call' or 'put'.

Data Types: char | cell

Option strike price value, specified as a nonnegative NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside single quotes (' '). You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: [Delta,Gamma,Price] = optstocksensbyrgw(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,'OutSpec',OutSpec)

collapse all

Define outputs specifying NOUT- by-1 or 1-by-NOUT cell array of character vectors with possible values of 'Price', 'Delta', 'Gamma', 'Vega', 'Lambda', 'Rho', 'Theta', and 'All'.

OutSpec = {'All'} specifies that the output should be Delta, Gamma, Vega, Lambda, Rho, Theta, and Price, in that order. This is the same as specifying OutSpec to include each sensitivity:

Example: OutSpec = {'delta','gamma','vega','lambda','rho','theta','price'}

Data Types: char | cell

Output Arguments

collapse all

Expected future prices or sensitivities values, returned as a NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double
