Provide a detailed discussion on the six factors that influence the premiums of European call and put options in the BlackScholes Model. 8. Use the BlackScholes formula to find the value of a call option of the following stock: Time to maturity = 6 months Standard deviation = 50% per year Exercise price = 50 Stock price = 50 Interest rate = 10% p.a. 9. Recalculate the value of the option in question 8, successively substituting one of the changes below while keeping the other parameters as in question 4: a. Time to maturity = 3 months b. Standard deviation = 25% per year c. Exercise price = 55 d. Stock price = 55 e. Interest rate = 15% p.a. Consider each scenario independently. Confirm that the option value changes in accordance with theoretical expectations. 10. Today is 1 September 2008.

The share price of SASOL is currently R400, and is expected to move up by 15%, or down by 10% every six months.
