Description |
Function HEDGEDEMO aims to help students and instructors of finance visualize trading demands of simple static or dynamic value-hedging strategies. In a single-factor setting, 2-asset hedge portfolios are constructed to match, at a point in time, value and delta of the hedged portfolio, consisting of 1-2 assets, one unit of each. (Delta is estimated by shifting the factor path by +/- 0.01). Factor dynamics are described by a Matlab expression or function that defines vector 'X' in terms of vector 'T', where T = StartDate:EndDate. With 'X' defined and evaluated, paths of asset prices are similarly given by Matlab expressions or functions inputting 'X' and 'T'. |
