This paper deals with the pricing of spread options on the difference between correlated log-normal underlying assets. We introduce a new pricing paradigm based on a set of precise lower bounds. We also derive closed form formulae for the Greeks and other sensitivities of the prices. In doing so we prove that the price of a spread option is a decreasing function of the correlation parameter, and we analyze the notion of implied correlation. We use numerical experiments to provide an extensive… CONTINUE READING
