spreadbykirk

Price European spread options using Kirk pricing model

Syntax

Price = spreadbykirk(RateSpec,StockSpec1,StockSpec2,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,Corr)

Description

example

Price = spreadbykirk(RateSpec,StockSpec1,StockSpec2,Settle,Maturity,OptSpec,Strike,Corr) returns the price for a European spread option using the Kirk pricing model.

Examples

collapse all

Define the spread option dates.

Settle = '01-Jan-2012';
Maturity = '01-April-2012';

Define asset 1. Price and volatility of RBOB gasoline

   Price1gallon = 2.85;          % $/gallon
   Price1 = Price1gallon * 42;   % $/barrel
   Vol1 = 0.29;

Define asset 2. Price and volatility of WTI crude oil

  Price2 = 93.20;         % $/barrel
  Vol2 = 0.36;

Define the correlation between the underlying asset prices of asset 1 and asset 2.

Corr = 0.42;

Define the spread option.

OptSpec = 'call';
Strike = 20;

Define the RateSpec.

rates = 0.05;
Compounding = -1;
Basis = 1;
RateSpec = intenvset('ValuationDate', Settle, 'StartDates', Settle, ...
'EndDates', Maturity, 'Rates', rates, ...
'Compounding', Compounding, 'Basis', Basis)
RateSpec = struct with fields:
           FinObj: 'RateSpec'
      Compounding: -1
             Disc: 0.9876
            Rates: 0.0500
         EndTimes: 0.2500

            Basis: 1
     EndMonthRule: 1

Define the StockSpec for the two assets.

StockSpec1 = stockspec(Vol1, Price1)
StockSpec1 = struct with fields:
             FinObj: 'StockSpec'
              Sigma: 0.2900
         AssetPrice: 119.7000
       DividendType: []
    DividendAmounts: 0
    ExDividendDates: []

StockSpec2 = stockspec(Vol2, Price2)
StockSpec2 = struct with fields:
             FinObj: 'StockSpec'
              Sigma: 0.3600
         AssetPrice: 93.2000
       DividendType: []
    DividendAmounts: 0
    ExDividendDates: []

Compute the European spread option price based on the Kirk model.

Price = spreadbykirk(RateSpec, StockSpec1, StockSpec2, Settle, ...
Maturity, OptSpec, Strike, Corr)
Price = 11.1904

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 underlying asset 1. For information on the stock specification, see stockspec.

stockspec can handle other types of underlying assets. For example, for physical commodities the price is represented by StockSpec.Asset, the volatility is represented by StockSpec.Sigma, and the convenience yield is represented by StockSpec.DividendAmounts.

Data Types: struct

Stock specification for underlying asset 2. For information on the stock specification, see stockspec.

stockspec can handle other types of underlying assets. For example, for physical commodities the price is represented by StockSpec.Asset, the volatility is represented by StockSpec.Sigma, and the convenience yield is represented by StockSpec.DividendAmounts.

Data Types: struct

Settlement dates for the spread option, specified as date character vectors or as serial date numbers using a NINST-by-1 vector or cell array of character vector dates.

Data Types: double | char | cell

Maturity date for spread option, specified as date character vectors or as serial date numbers using a NINST-by-1 vector or cell array of character vector dates.

Data Types: double | char | cell

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

Data Types: cell | char

Option strike price values, specified as an integer using a NINST-by-1 vector of strike price values.

If Strike is equal to 0, the function computes the price of an exchange option.

Data Types: single | double

Correlation between underlying asset prices, specified as an integer using a NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: single | double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Expected prices of the spread option, returned as a NINST-by-1 vector.
