I think the credit modeling will change, giving less importance to “Reduced form models” that describe bankruptcy as a sudden event preceded by a stoochastic upward shift! In retrospect, I think my real contribution is not so much as to have developed the local volatility than having defined the notion of instantaneous forward variance, conditional or unconditional, and explained the mechanisms to synthesize them.

You keep working on the volatility and correlation, can we wjth these two parameters as assets in its own right? I presented in A Unified Theory of Volatilitywhich provides among others things pricinb the local variances square of the local volatilities are synthesizable from the vanillas and a stochastic volatility is calibrated to the surface if and only if the instantaneous variance expected, conditional on a price level, equal to the local variance set by the surface.

Regarding the future, it is likely sochastic the work on the microstructure, powered by the dominance of electronic trading, will continue to grow. The article written on the SABR said in essence two things: In the business side, we can expect an expansion of securitization to a wide variety of underlying if you want a French example: Theory, Estimation, and an Application.

Pricing variance swaps under a stochastic interest rate and volatility model with regime-switching Yang ShenTak Kuen Siu Oper. Gradually the market has understood the importance of calibrating a model to standard instruments to derive the price of more complicated instruments, and also facilitate the aggregation of risk.


It is important to agbitrage the concept of local volatility from the local volatility model. He was among the first volatility traders in the matif!

References Publications referenced by this paper. I have developed stochastic volatility models and alternative modeling before and after developing the local volatility model, its limitations are so glaring. A new approach for option pricing under stochastic volatility Peter CarrJian Sun To accurately translate a view on the correlation into a strategy, one must ideally operate with a variety of strikes or variance swaps.

When it is taken into account, we realize that the SABR is a noised version of the local volatility model, centered on it. The quantities that can be treated synthetically are not the volatility and the correlation, but the variance and covariance, to some extent. We have all been associated to this model. It is fashionable to regard them as “asset classes” and to speak freely about trading and volatility arbitrage or correlation, in most cases unjustifiably.

The Pricing of Options and Corporate Liabilities. Topics Discussed in This Paper. The issues facing traders regarding the smile were about knowing if the skew was justified or excessive, while my concern was not to question itbut rather understand its impact on the price of the exotic options.

The skew, or the strong dependence of the implied volatility against the strike, which led to different assumptions about price dynamics depending on the option considered, which is untenable.

Emphasis is placed on computational techniques, determining the choice of a model based on the existence of closed formulas. They may receive a contribution of “behavioral finance” to better model the process of pricing and the dynamic of trend following and the rebound. This problem was more accepted in the world of interest rate than the world of volatility. On the one hand found it a bit unfair because I had built a better tree earlier, more importantly, I developed the continuous case theory and set up the robust hedge approach for volatility volati,ity to volatilihy down the Vega sensitivity to volatility on the strikes and maturities.


The model has the following characteristics and is the only one to have: The same principle applies to dispersion arbitrage for example. In a recent interview on this site, Elie Ayache stated: So I had two models: Add a new comment. Specifically, if all vanillas on a given underlying are liquid, it is possible to extract the levels of instantaneous variances, or squares of short-term volatilities at the money, unconditional or conditional, but not the skews.

This paper was introducing without knowing the Variance Swaps as Neuburger and volatility derivatives. SmithJose Vicente Alvarez The principle is very simple: Meanwhile, Emanuel Derman and Iraj kani, the research group of Goldman Sachs, had developed a binomial tree which answered the same question they finally switched to trinomial tree inbut it is anyway better to implement finite difference method.

Arbitrage Pricing with Stochastic Volatility. This is still due to the fundamental fact that the current calibration data requires the conditional expectation of the instantaneous variance, which is none other than the local variance.

Showing of 18 extracted citations. To ensure the relevance of the approach, I needed to have a formulation of the model in continuous time pricing, what I did in early Criticizing local volatility means criticize the instantaneous forward rate, which was a major advance in forward interest rates. For the multi-asset case, the situation is more complicated. Stcohastic participants are unaware that the variances have the status of instantaneous forward variance stochasyic on a price level.

In the SABR, two parameters affect the skew: So if the market systematically deviates from local volatilities, it is possible to set up an arbitrage strategy. At the previous time step, its value at each node gives a profile that can be written as a portfolio of three Calls with neighboring strikes expiring immediately.
