Example text

To switch from interest rate per annum to interest rate per trading day is very straightforward. The following relationship holds between interest rate per annum and interest rate per trading day. 1 Vega is not actually a Greek letter, but in option theory it is still referred to as an option Greek. 1 can be conducted for the interest rate. The derivative of the option price with respect to the interest rate gives its sensitivity to the interest rate. Of course, since the price of a European put option decreases as the interest rate increases, this derivative should be negative for the put option.

Luckily, there is an easy formula to switch from volatility per (trading) day to volatility per annum (cf. p. 231 of Hull, 1993): sffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffiffi Number of trading Volatility per Volatility per  ¼ days per annum trading day annum ð2:5Þ As mentioned earlier, the higher the volatility the higher the option price. This also becomes clear when looking at the Black–Scholes formula. The derivative of the option THE BLACK–SCHOLES FORMULA 29 price with respect to the volatility gives the price’s sensitivity to volatility.

Suppose that ST is the price of the underlying stock at maturity, and K is the strike price of the option. The payoff from a long position in a European call option is: maxðST À K; 0Þ This formula is in compliance with the fact that the option will be exercised if ST > K, and will not be exercised if ST K. The payoff from a short position in a European call is: À maxðST À K; 0Þ This is again logical, since whatever the holder of a long position wins by exercising, the holder of a short position loses.
