A lookback option is a maturity option that pays off based on the maximum or minimum stock price over the life of the option. This paper investigates the problem of pricing a lookback option based on the uncertain mean-reverting currency model and designs the algorithms to calculate the formulations. Furthermore, discussions about parameters and results are drawn in the paper.
