  3. 3. Option Pricing and Early Exercise Boundary of American Options under Markov-Modulated Volatility

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för utbildning, kultur och kommunikation

    Author : Danny Zina; [2020]
    Keywords : Pricing American Options; Early Exercise Boundary; Markov-Modulated Volatility; Switching-State Volatility; Extended CRR Model.;

    Abstract : The CRR binomial model is one of the most important models in financial mathematics. In this thesis we consider an extension to this model with Markov switching-state volatility. We present a detailed algorithm for obtaining early exercise boundaries for American options, as well as, fair prices for both American and European options. READ MORE
