Cap : buy a call to insure a short position against a higher price of an asset. 2.

(To create a synthetic forward contract.) (2) Enter a forward agreement to buy S T , and at time T pay F ,t , the price of the forward agreement. By the no-arbitrage principle, these two ways must cost the same. Discounting to time 0, this means Call ( K,t )- Put ( K,t ) + PV ( K ) = PV ( F ,t ) .
