Compute price for equity instrument with RoughVolMonteCarlo pricer

Since R2024a



[Price,PriceResult] = price(inpPricer,inpInstrument) computes the equity instrument price and related pricing information based on the pricing object inpPricer and the instrument object inpInstrument.


[Price,PriceResult] = price(___,inpSensitivity) adds an optional argument to specify sensitivities. Use this syntax with the input argument combination in the previous syntax.

This example shows the workflow to price a fixed-strike Asian instrument when you use a RoughBergomi model and an RoughVolMonteCarlo pricing method.

Create Asian Instrument Object

Use fininstrument to create an Asian instrument object.

AsianOpt = fininstrument("Asian",'ExerciseDate',datetime(2019,1,30),'Strike',1000,'OptionType',"put",'Name',"asian_option")
AsianOpt = 
  Asian with properties:

          OptionType: "put"
              Strike: 1000
         AverageType: "arithmetic"
        AveragePrice: 0
    AverageStartDate: NaT
       ExerciseStyle: "european"
        ExerciseDate: 30-Jan-2019
                Name: "asian_option"

Create RoughBergomi Model Object

Use finmodel to create a RoughBergomi model object.

RoughBergomiModel = finmodel("RoughBergomi",Alpha=-0.32, Xi=0.1,Eta=0.003,RhoSV=0.9)
RoughBergomiModel = 
  RoughBergomi with properties:

    Alpha: -0.3200
       Xi: 0.1000
      Eta: 0.0030
    RhoSV: 0.9000

Create ratecurve Object

Create a flat ratecurve object using ratecurve.

Settle = datetime(2018,9,15);
Maturity = datetime(2023,9,15);
Rate = 0.035;
myRC = ratecurve('zero',Settle,Maturity,Rate,'Basis',12)
myRC = 
  ratecurve with properties:

                 Type: "zero"
          Compounding: -1
                Basis: 12
                Dates: 15-Sep-2023
                Rates: 0.0350
               Settle: 15-Sep-2018
         InterpMethod: "linear"
    ShortExtrapMethod: "next"
     LongExtrapMethod: "previous"

Create RoughVolMonteCarlo Pricer Object

Use finpricer to create an RoughVolMonteCarlo pricer object and use the ratecurve object for the 'DiscountCurve' name-value argument.

outPricer = finpricer("RoughVolMonteCarlo",DiscountCurve=myRC,Model=RoughBergomiModel,SpotPrice=900,simulationDates=datetime(2019,1,30))
outPricer = 
  RoughBergomiMonteCarlo with properties:

           DiscountCurve: [1x1 ratecurve]
               SpotPrice: 900
         SimulationDates: 30-Jan-2019
               NumTrials: 1000
           RandomNumbers: []
                   Model: [1x1 finmodel.RoughBergomi]
            DividendType: "continuous"
           DividendValue: 0
        MonteCarloMethod: "standard"
    BrownianMotionMethod: "standard"

Price Asian Instrument

Use price to compute the price and sensitivities for the Asian instrument.

[Price, outPR] = price(outPricer,AsianOpt,"all")
Price = 103.0639
outPR = 
  priceresult with properties:

       Results: [1x7 table]
    PricerData: [1x1 struct]

ans=1×7 table
    Price      Delta        Gamma      Lambda       Rho       Theta      Vega 
    ______    ________    _________    _______    _______    _______    ______

    103.06    -0.77793    0.0024128    -6.7932    -166.05    -1.4838    88.272

Input Arguments

collapse all

Pricer object, specified as a previously created RoughVolMonteCarlo pricer object. Create the pricer object using finpricer.

Data Types: object

Instrument object, specified as a scalar or a vector of previously created instrument objects. Create the instrument objects using fininstrument. The following instrument objects are supported:

Data Types: object

(Optional) List of sensitivities to compute, specified as an NOUT-by-1 or 1-by-NOUT cell array of character vectors or string array.

The supported sensitivities depend on the pricing method.

inpInstrument ObjectSupported Sensitivities
Vanilla{'delta','gamma','vega', 'theta','rho','price','lambda'}

inpSensitivity = {'All'} or inpSensitivity = ["All"] specifies that all sensitivities for the pricing method are returned. This is the same as specifying inpSensitivity to include each sensitivity.

Example: inpSensitivity = ["delta","gamma","vega","lambda","rho","theta","price"]

Data Types: cell | string

Output Arguments

collapse all

Instrument price, returned as a numeric.

Price result, returned as a PriceResult object. The object has the following fields:

  • PriceResult.Results — Table of results that includes sensitivities (if you specify inpSensitivity)

  • PriceResult.PricerData — Structure for pricer data
