American Options under Stochastic Volatility: Parameter Estimation and Pricing Efficiency

Abstract

We consider American option pricing in the context of the widely adopted stochastic volatility model of Heston (1993). While estimating such model is challenging, we develop a pricing technique that is both efficiently accurate and robust with respect to estimates of spot and equilibrium volatilities. Our approach is based on a well-developed and efficient… (More)
