27.1250 Please note that in all instances the value of immediate exercise is smaller than the continuation
value, the (European) call premium. Therefore, the value of the European call and the American
call are identical. 66 Chapter 10 Binomial Option Pricing: 1 b)
We can calculate similarly the binomial prices at each node in the tree. We can calculate

From the previous tables, we can see that at the node dd, it is optimal to early exercise the
American put option, because the value of early exercise exceeds the continuation value.
Therefore, we must use the value of 20.404 in all relevant previous nodes when we back out the
prices of the American put option. We have for nodes d and 0 (the other nodes remain
unchanged): delta

8.6307 The price of the American put option is indeed 6.678.
Question 10.12.
a) We can calculate u and d as follows:
u = e (r −δ )h +σ
d = e (r −δ )h −σ h
h = e (0.08 )×0.25+0.3×
= e (0.08 )×0.25−0.3× 0.25
0.25 = 1.1853
= 0.8781 67 Part 3 Options b)
We need to calculate the values at the relevant nodes in order to price the European call
option: delta

the European put option):

0 For the American put option, we have to compare the premia at each node with the value of early
exercise. We see from the following table that at the node d, it is advantageous to exercise the
option early; consequently, we use the value of early exercise when we calculate the value of the
put option.

a)
We can calculate the price of the call currency option in a very similar way to our
previous calculations. We simply replace the dividend yield with the foreign interest rate in our
formulas. Thus, we have: delta

Question 10.16.
aa)
We now have to inverse the interest rates: We have a Yendenominated option, therefore,
the dollar interest rate becomes the foreign interest rate. With these changes, and equipped with
an exchange rate of Y120/$ and a strike of Y120, we can proceed with our standard binomial
procedure. delta
