Note on simulation pricing of $\pi$-options

  title={Note on simulation pricing of \$\pi\$-options},
  author={Zbigniew Palmowski and Tomasz Serafin},
  journal={arXiv: Computational Finance},
In this work, we adapt a Monte Carlo algorithm introduced by Broadie and Glasserman (1997) to price a $\pi$-option. This method is based on the simulated price tree that comes from discretization and replication of possible trajectories of the underlying asset's price. As a result this algorithm produces the lower and the upper bounds that converge to the true price with the increasing depth of the tree. Under specific parametrization, this $\pi$-option is related to relative maximum drawdown… Expand


Monte Carlo Valuation of American Options
This paper introduces a dual way to price American options, based on simulating the paths of the option payoff, and of a judiciously chosen Lagrangian martingale. Taking the pathwise maximum of theExpand
Enhanced Monte Carlo Estimates for American Option Prices
The authors propose a hybrid valuation technique that bridges Monte Carlo simulation and lattice methods that simulates whole price trees and offers a variety of techniques that substantially increase efficiency. Expand
American Option Valuation: New Bounds, Approximations, and a Comparison of Existing Methods
We develop lower and upper bounds on the prices of American call and put options written on a dividend-paying asset. We provide two option price approximations, one based on the lower bound (termedExpand
Monte Carlo methods for security pricing
The Monte Carlo approach has proved to be a valuable and flexible computational tool in modern finance. This paper discusses some of the recent applications of the Monte Carlo method to securityExpand
The valuation of warrants: Implementing a new approach
Abstract The option pricing model developed by Black and Scholes and extended by Merton gives rise to partial differential equations governing the value of an option. When the underlying stock paysExpand
Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Numerical Finance
This paper introduces and illustrates a new version of the Monte Carlo method that has attractive properties for the numerical valuation of derivatives. The traditional Monte Carlo method has provenExpand
Regression methods for pricing complex American-style options
A simulation-based approximate dynamic programming method for pricing complex American-style options, with a possibly high-dimensional underlying state space, and a related method which uses a single (parameterized) value function, which is a function of the time-state pair. Expand
Numerical Valuation of High Dimensional Multivariate American Securities
We consider the problem of pricing an American contingent claim whose payoff depends on several sources of uncertainty. Several efficient numerical lattice-based techniques exist for pricing AmericanExpand
An analysis of a least squares regression method for American option pricing
Under fairly general conditions, this paper proves the almost sure convergence of the complete algorithm due to Longstaff and Schwartz and determines the rate of convergence of approximation two and proves that its normalized error is asymptotically Gaussian. Expand
Valuation of the early-exercise price for options using simulations and nonparametric regression
Abstract This article shows how to value the optimal stopping time for any Markovian process in finite discrete time. Specifically, the article focuses on the valuation of American options usingExpand
