Syntax

Price = supersharebybls(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,StrikeLow,StrikeHigh)

Description

example

Price = supersharebybls(RateSpec,StockSpec,Settle,Maturity,StrikeLow,StrikeHigh) computes supershare digital options using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

This example shows how to compute the price of supershare digital options using Black-Scholes model. Consider a supershare based on a portfolio of nondividend paying stocks with a lower strike of 350 and an upper strike of 450. The value of the portfolio on November 1, 2008 is 400. The risk-free rate is 4.5% and the volatility is 18%. Using this data, calculate the price of the supershare option on February 1, 2009.

Settle = 'Nov-1-2008';
Maturity = 'Feb-1-2009';
Rates = 0.045;
Basis = 1;
Compounding = -1;

% create the RateSpec
RateSpec = intenvset('ValuationDate', Settle, 'StartDates', Settle,...
'EndDates', Maturity, 'Rates', Rates, 'Compounding', Compounding, 'Basis', Basis);

% define the StockSpec
AssetPrice = 400;
Sigma = .18;
StockSpec = stockspec(Sigma, AssetPrice);

% define the high and low strike points
StrikeLow = 350;
StrikeHigh = 450;

% calculate the price
Pssh = supersharebybls(RateSpec, StockSpec, Settle, Maturity,...
StrikeLow, StrikeHigh)
Pssh = 0.9411

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 for the basket option, specified as an NINST-by-1 vector of serial date numbers or date character vectors.

Data Types: double | char | cell

Maturity date for the basket option, specified as an NINST-by-1 vector of serial date numbers or date character vectors.

Data Types: double | char | cell

Low strike price values, specified as an NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double

High strike price values, specified as an NINST-by-1 vector.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Expected prices for supershare option, returned as a NINST-by-1 vector.
