Class EuropeanOptionDeltaPathwise

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Product, AssetMonteCarloProduct, MonteCarloProduct

    public class EuropeanOptionDeltaPathwise
    extends AbstractAssetMonteCarloProduct
    Implements calculation of the delta of a European option using the path-wise method, assuming that the underlying follows a model where d S(T)/d S(0) = S(T)/S(0), e.g., Black-Scholes.

        Construct a product representing an European option on an asset S (where S the asset with index 0 from the model - single asset case).
        strike - The strike K in the option payoff max(S(T)-K,0).
        maturity - The maturity T in the option payoff max(S(T)-K,0)

      • getValue

        public RandomVariable getValue​(double evaluationTime,

                                throws CalculationException
        This method returns the value random variable of the product within the specified model, evaluated at a given evalutationTime. Note: For a lattice this is often the value conditional to evalutationTime, for a Monte-Carlo simulation this is the (sum of) value discounted to evaluation time. Cashflows prior evaluationTime are not considered.

        evaluationTime - The time on which this products value should be observed.
        model - The model used to price the product.
        The random variable representing the value of the product discounted to evaluation time
        CalculationException - Thrown if the valuation fails, specific cause may be available via the cause() method.
