An efficient method is developed for pricing American options on combination stochastic volatility/jump-diffusion processes when jump risk and volatility risk are systematic and nondiversifiable, thereby nesting two major option pricing models. The parameters implicit in PHLX-traded Deutschemark options of the stochastic volatility/jump- diffusion model and various submodels are estimated over 1984-91, and are tested for consistency with the $/DM futures process and the implicit volatility… 
Pricing FTSE 100 Index Options under Stochastic Volatility
The autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity/generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (ARCH/GARCH) literature and studies of implied volatility clearly show that volatility
Stochastic Volatility and Jump-Diffusion --- Implications on Option Pricing
This paper conducts a thorough and detailed investigation on the implications of stochastic volatility and random jump on option prices. Both stochastic volatility and jump-diffusion processes admit
Jumps and stochastic volatility in crude oil prices and advances in average option pricing
Crude oil derivatives form an important part of the global derivatives market. In this paper, we focus on Asian options which are favoured by risk managers being effective and cost-saving hedging
Forecasting Exchange Rate Volatility in the Presence of Jumps
We study measures of foreign exchange rate volatility based on high-frequency (5-minute) $/DM exchange rate returns using recent nonparametric statistical techniques to compute realized return
Stochastic Volatility Jump-Diffusions for Equity Index Dynamics
This paper examines the ability of twelve different continuous-time two-factor models with mean-reverting stochastic volatility to capture the dynamics of the S&P 500 and three European equity
Representation of exchange option prices under stochastic volatility jump-diffusion dynamics
In this article, we provide representations of European and American exchange option prices under stochastic volatility jump-diffusion (SVJD) dynamics following models by Merton [Option pricing when
Semi-Analytical Option Pricing Under Double Heston Jump-Diffusion Hybrid Model
We examine European call options in the jump-diffusion version of the Double Heston stochastic volatility model for the underlying price process to provide a more flexible model for the term
Mathematical modeling and analysis of options with jump-diffusion volatility
Several existing pricing models of financial derivatives as well as the effects of volatility risk are analyzed. A new option pricing model is proposed which assumes that stock price follows a
Exact and Approximated Option Pricing in a Stochastic Volatility Jump-Diffusion Model
We propose a stochastic volatility jump-diffusion model for option pricing with contemporaneous jumps in both spot return and volatility dynamics. The model admits, in the spirit of Heston, a


Pricing Stock Options in a Jump‐Diffusion Model with Stochastic Volatility and Interest Rates: Applications of Fourier Inversion Methods
Fast closed form solutions for prices on European stock options are developed in a jump‐diffusion model with stochastic volatility and stochastic interest rates. The probability functions in the
An empirical version of the Cox, Ingersoll, and Ross (1985a) call option pricing model is derived, assuming execution price uncertainty in the options market. the pricing restrictions come in the
This paper compares the ability of four valuation models — the Pure Diffusion model of Black-Scholes-Merton, the Absolute Diffusion and Pure Jump models of Cox-Ross, and the mixed Jump-Diffusion
A Closed-Form Solution for Options with Stochastic Volatility with Applications to Bond and Currency Options
I use a new technique to derive a closed-form solution for the price of a European call option on an asset with stochastic volatility. The model allows arbitrary correlation between volatility and
Testing the Expectations Hypothesis on the Term Structure of Volatilities in Foreign Exchange Options
This article tests the expectations hypothesis in the term structure of volatilities in foreign exchange options. In particular, it addresses whether long-dated volatility quotes are consistent with
Forecasting Stock-Return Variance: Toward an Understanding of Stochastic Implied Volatilities
We examine the behavior of measured variances from the options market and the underlying stock market. Under the joint hypotheses that markets are informationally efficient and that option prices are
On Jump Processes in the Foreign Exchange and Stock Markets
exchange rates exhibit systematic discontinuities, even after allowingfor conditional heteroskedasticity in the diffusion process. The results are much more significant in theforeign exchange market
