Uncertain Parameters, an Empirical Stochastic Volatility Model and Confidence Limits

A. Oztukel, P. Wilmott


In this paper we build upon the recently developed uncertain parameter framework for valuing derivatives in a worst-case scenario. We start by deriving a stochastic volatility model based on a simple analysis of time-series data. We use this stochastic model to examine the time evolution of volatility from an initial known value to a steady-state distribution in the long run. This empirical model is then incorporated into the uncertain parameter option valuation framework to provide 'confidence limits' for the option value.
