In this paper we study the short-time behavior of the at-the-money implied volatility for arithmetic Asian options with fixed strike price. The asset price is assumed to follow the Black-Scholes model with a general stochastic volatility process. Using techniques of the Malliavin calculus such as the anticipating Itˆo’s formula we first compute the level of the implied volatility of the option when the maturity converges to zero. Then, we find and short maturity asymptotic formula for the skew of…

Short Maturity Asian Options in Local Volatility Models

An analytical approximation for Asian options prices is presented, and good numerical agreement of the asymptotic results with the results of Monte Carlo simulations and benchmark test cases in the Black-Scholes model for option parameters relevant in practical applications is demonstrated.

On the Curvature of the Smile in Stochastic Volatility Models

In this paper we compute analytically the at-the-money second derivative of the implied volatility curve as a function of the strike price, for correlated stochastic volatility models. We also obtain

On the short-time behavior of the implied volatility for jump-diffusion models with stochastic volatility

Abstract In this paper we use Malliavin calculus techniques to obtain an expression for the short-time behavior of the at-the-money implied volatility skew for a generalization of the Bates model,

Estimating the Hurst parameter from short term volatility swaps: a Malliavin calculus approach

A Malliavin calculus approach is used to derive an exact expression for the difference between the fair strike of a volatility swap and the at-the-money implied volatility of a European call option, and develops a model-free approximation formula for the volatility swap in terms of the ATMI and its skew.

A note on the implied volatility of floating strike Asian options

In this paper, we study the short-time behavior of the implied volatility for short-time floating strike Asian options. Our method is based on Malliavin calculus techniques and allows us to construct

The classical Hull and White formula for option pricing can be extended to the case where the volatility and the noise driving the stock prices are correlated to describe the effect of correlation on option prices and derive approximate option pricing formulas.
