The previous figures are “binomial trees” or lattices. These are: intuitive + easy to understand; simple to implement; able to accommodate American and exotic options.         A Model of Stock Prices

Assumptions Trading takes place at discrete, evenly spaced times. If S i is the “underlying’s” value at time i , then the only values in the next period are uS i and dS i . Often we will omit the subscript. r f is (1 + R f ) where R f is the risk free rate over each time interval. Markets are frictionless (no transaction costs, no barriers to entry etc). The market is free of arbitrage opportunities: d < r f < u If r f < d < u the “risky” security guarantees a return higher than the risk free rate. If d < u < r f then the risky security never offers a return higher than the risk free rate.         A Model of Stock Prices

        Static vs.  Dynamic Replication  Definition: Static Replication Buy (or sell) and then HOLD a portfolio of securities such that a particular payoff is “replicated”. Example 1 Borrow PV ( X ) 2 Sell a put option on a firm’s assets This Portfolio replicates the payoff of a firm’s debt. There is no need to trade after setting up the portfolio.

Dynamic Replication Continuously TRADE certain securities in certain amounts so that a desired payoff is “replicated”. For example: Replicating a call option by trading bonds and the underlying security (or stock). This week we focus on dynamic replication. For some simple options static portfolio value = dynamic portfolio value. THIS IS NOT TRUE IN ALL CASES. Static and dynamic valuation approaches are complementary and NOT substitutes for one another. Finding a static replicating portfolio can require some care (e.g
