Unbiasing and robustifying implied volatility calibration in a cryptocurrency market with large bid-ask spreads and missing quotes

  title={Unbiasing and robustifying implied volatility calibration in a cryptocurrency market with large bid-ask spreads and missing quotes},
  author={Mnacho Echenim and Emmanuel Gobet and Anne-Claire Maurice},
We design a novel calibration procedure that is designed to handle the specific characteristics of options on cryptocurrency markets, namely large bid-ask spreads and the possibility of missing or incoherent prices in the considered data sets. We show that this calibration procedure is significantly more robust and accurate than the standard one based on trade and mid-prices. 



Arbitrage-free SVI volatility surfaces

In this article, we show how to calibrate the widely used SVI parameterization of the implied volatility smile in such a way as to guarantee the absence of static arbitrage. In particular, we exhibit

Hyp Hyp Hooray

A new stochastic-local volatility model is introduced. The new model’s structural features are carefully selected to accommodate economic principles, financial markets’ reality, mathematical

Arbitrage-free smoothing of the implied volatility surface

The pricing accuracy and pricing performance of local volatility models depends on the absence of arbitrage in the implied volatility surface. An input implied volatility surface that is not

Convergence of Heston to SVI

In this short note, we prove by an appropriate change of variables that the SVI implied volatility parameterization presented in Gatheral's book and the large-time asymptotic of the Heston implied

Arbitrage-free approximation of call price surfaces and input data risk

In this paper we construct arbitrage-free call price surfaces from observed market data by locally constrained least squares approximations. The algorithm computes derivatives of the call surface

Implied Volatility: Statics, Dynamics, and Probabilistic Interpretation

Given the price of a call or put option, the Black-Scholes implied volatility is the unique volatility parameter for which the Black-Scholes formula recovers the option price. This article surveys


Market smiles and skews are usually managed by using local volatility models a la Dupire. We discover that the dynamics of the market smile predicted by local vol models is opposite of observed

Foreign currency option values


We consider an asset whose risk‐neutral dynamics are described by a general class of local‐stochastic volatility models and derive a family of asymptotic expansions for European‐style option prices
