Example text

In pricing derivative securities, we face a somewhat different problem. 9 Hence, there is a chain effect. Time passes, new (small) events occur, the price of the underlying asset changes, and this affects the derivative asset’s price. In standard calculus, the tool used to analyze these sorts of chain effects is known as the chain rule. 9 As time passes, the expiration date of a contract comes closer, and even if the underlying asset’s price remains constant, the price of the call option will fall.

This requires the study of the so-called stochastic calculus. 9 APPENDIX: GENERALIZATION OF THEARBITRAGE THEOREM assumptions that lead to major results in stochastic calculus. Third, we need to understand how to obtain risk-adjusted probabilities and how to determine the correct discounting factor. The Girsanov theorem states the conditions under which such risk-adjusted probabilities can be used. The theorem also gives the form of these probability distributions. Further, the notion of martingales is essential to Girsanov theorem, and, consequently, to the understanding of the “risk-neutral” world.

Hence, it is not a random variable given the information set at It . 71) C= 1+r where Q is the risk-neutral probability, and where we ignore the time subscripts. Note that the first equation is now different from the case with no dividends, but that the second equation is the same. According to this, each time an asset has some known percentage payout d during the period , the risk-neutral discounting of the dividend-paying asset has to be done using the factor (1 + d)/(1 + r) instead of multiplying by 1/(1 + r) only.
