What's Beneath the Surface? Option Pricing with Multifrequency Latent States


Calvet, Laurent; Fisher, Adlai; Leippold, Markus (2013). What's Beneath the Surface? Option Pricing with Multifrequency Latent States. HEC Paris Research Paper 969/2013, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We introduce a tractable class of non-ane price processes with multifrequency stochastic volatil- ity and jumps. The specications require few xed parameters and deliver fast option pricing. One key ingredient is a tight link between jumps and volatility regimes, as asset pricing theory suggests. Empirically, the model matches implied volatility surfaces and their dynamics with- out requiring parameter recalibration. A variety of metrics show improvements over traditional benchmarks in- and out-of-sample.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
