  • In this paper, we derive the price of a European call option of an asset following a normal process assuming stochastic volatility. The volatility is assumed to follow the Cox Ingersoll Ross (CIR) process. We then use the fast Fourier transform (FFT) to evaluate the option price given we know the characteristic function of the return analytically. We compare the results of fast Fourier transform with the Monte Carlo simulation results of our process. Further, we present a numerical example to… CONTINUE READING
