Simulation Comparison

  • Jian Chen


In the presence of jumps, the financial market is no longer complete, and option payoffs cannot be replicated by a portfolio of primitive assets. The state price density and the pricing kernel are not unique. In order to price options in an incomplete market, either a candidate pricing kernel is used for the risk-neutral evaluation approach, or a general pricing framework built on the equilibrium exchange economy of Lucas (Econometrica, 46:1429–1445, 1978) is required.
