Valuation of European option under uncertain volatility model
- 115 Downloads
Valuation of an option plays an important role in modern finance. As the financial market for derivatives continues to grow, the progress and the power of option pricing models at predicting the value of option premium are under investigations. In this paper, we assume that the volatility of the stock price follows an uncertain differential equation and propose an uncertain counterpart of the Heston model. This study also focuses on deriving a numerical method for pricing a European option under uncertain volatility model, and some numerical experiments are presented. Numerical experiments confirm that the developed methods are very efficient.
