This paper mainly discusses the American option's hedging strategies via binomialmodel and the basic idea of pricing and hedging American option. Although the essential scheme of hedging is almost the same as European option, small differences may arise when simulating the process for American option holder has more rights, spelling that the option can be exercised at anytime before its maturity. Our method is dynamic-hedging method.

A Simple and Numerically Efficient Valuation Method for American Puts Using a Modified Geske‐Johnson Approach
R. Geske and H. E. Johnson (1984) develop an equation for the American put price and obtain accurate prices using a method requiring quadrivariate normal integrals evaluated over an intervalExpand
A More Accurate Finite Difference Approximation for the Valuation of Options
Schwartz [3] proposed a model to solve for the value of a warrant or an option when a closed-form solution of the valuation equation cannot be obtained. This model is based on a differenceExpand
Autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity with estimates of the variance of United Kingdom inflation
Traditional econometric models assume a constant one-period forecast variance. To generalize this implausible assumption, a new class of stochastic processes called autoregressive conditionalExpand
Simulations can be initialized in one of three ways: 1) a blank canvas, 2) from the results of a previous simulation, and 3) mutation-selection equilibrium. Starting a simulation as a blank canvasExpand
