Chapter 3 Insurance, Collars, and Other Strategies n Question 3.1 This question is a direct application of put-call parity (Equation 3.1) of the textbook. Mimicking Table 3.1, we have: Loan Payoff - (Cost + Interest) Profit 900.00 100.00 - 1000.00 0.00 - 95.68 - 95.68 950.00 50.00 - 1000.00 0.00 - 95.68 - 95.68 1000.00 0.00 - 1000.00 0.00 - 95.68 - 95.68 1050.00 0.00 - 1000.00 50.00 - 95.68 - 45.68 1100.00 0.00 - 1000.00 100.00 - 95.68 4.32 1150.00 0.00 - 1000.00 150.00 - 95.68 54.32 1200.00 0.00 - 1000.00 200.00 - 95.68 104.32 The payoff diagram looks as follows:

23 McDonald • Fundamentals of Derivatives Markets We can see from the table and from the payoff diagram that we have replicated a call option payoff with the index, put, and borrowing positions. The profit diagram on the next page shows the profit diagram of our strategy is also the same as that of a call option. n Question 3.2 This question constructs a position that is the opposite of the position of Table 3.1. Therefore, we should get the exact opposite results from Table 3.1 and the associated figures. Mimicking Table 3.1, we have: Payoff - (Cost + Interest) Profit - 900.00 - 100.00 - 1000.00 1095.68 95.68 - 950.00 - 50.00 - 1000.00 1095.68 95.68 - 1000.00 0.00 - 1000.00 1095.68 95.68 - 1050.00 0.00 - 1050.00 1095.68 45.68 - 1100.00 0.00 - 1100.00 1095.68 - 4.32 - 1150.00 0.00 - 1150.00 1095.68 - 54.32 - 1200.00 0.00 - 1200.00 1095.68 - 104.32 On the next page, we see the corresponding payoff and profit diagrams. Please note that they match the combined payoff and profit diagrams of Figure 3.5. Only the axes have different scales.

25 McDonald • Fundamentals of Derivatives Markets n Question 3.3 In order to be able to draw profit diagrams, we need to find the future value (FV) of the index cost, the put premium, the call premium, and the investment in zero-coupon bonds. We have: FV of index cost: 1000 (1 0.02) \$1020 FV of the put premium: \$51.777 (1 0.02) \$52.813 FV of the call premium: \$120.405 (1 0.02) \$122.813 FV of the zero-coupon bond: \$931.37 (1 0.02) \$950.00 × + = × + = × + = × + = Our index plus put position has a FV cost of \$1072.813. Our payoff diagram is: From this figure, we can already see that the combination of a long put and the long index looks exactly like a certain payoff of \$950, plus the payoff of a call with a strike price of 950 (i.e., max(0, 950)). T S - This is the alternative investment given to us in the question. Its FV cost is 950 122.813 1072.813 + = which is exactly the same as our index plus put position. We have thus confirmed the equivalence of the two combined positions for the payoff diagrams. Since the costs are the same, the profit diagrams for the two are identical.
