Quadratic variation plays a very important role with Brownian motion and stochastic calculus. The integral over 0, T ] should be the sum of integrals over subintervals [0, a1 , a1 , a2 , a2 , a3 , So if X t takes values ci on each subinterval then the integral of X with respect to B is easily defined. First we consider the integrals of simple processes e t which depend on t and not on B t. Zero mean property. Isometry Property.

Also the integral that arises this way still satisfies properties above. It can be shown that if a general predictable process satifies certain conditions, the eneral process is a limit in probability of siple predictable processes we discussed earlier. For example, we find the 0T B t dB t. Notice that from property 5 of Brownian RT n motion patht the second sum converges to the limit T.

The quadratic variation of continuous functions, x t , of finite variation we work withR in standard calculus is 0. Recall that Brownian motion has quadratic variation on [0,t] equal to t, for any t. One last very important case for us to consider is for functions of the form f X t , t.

Therefore, we let the function V S, t be twice differentiable in S and differentiable in t. Note from above that this portfolio is hedged.

Since this portfolio contains no risk it must earn the same as other short-term risk-free securities. If it earned more than this, arbitrageurs could make a profit by shorting the risk- free securities and using the proceeds to download this portfolio. If the portfolio earned less arbitrageurs could make a riskless profit by shorting the portfolio and downloading the risk-free securities. For this project we will concern ourselves with a European call, C S, t with exercise price E and expiry date T.

The first step is to get rid of the S and S 2 terms in equation The first integral can be solved by completing the square in the exponent. This means that a person can use the Black-Scholes differ- ential equation to solve for the price of any type of option only by changing the boundary conditions.

The Black-Scholes model truly revolutionized the world of finance.

For the first time the model has given traders, hedgers, and investors a standard way to value options. The model also has also caused a huge growth in the importance of financial engineering in the world of finance. Today, mathe- maticians are building models to maximize portfolio returns while minimizing risk.

They are also building sophisticated computer programs to search for inefficiencies in the market. The world of finance is becoming built on math- ematics and the Black-Scholes model was the beginning of this mathematical revolution.

There exist many researchers about how the behavior of different investors makes the option price movement in a stock market. The purpose of this paper is to construct the Black Scholes option pricing model in the stock markets by using Brownian motion approach.

The main ambition of this study is fourfold: 1 First we begin our approach to construction of Brownian motion from the simple symmetric random walk.

And this paper will end with conclusion. Brownian motion gets its name from the botanist Robert Brown [1] in who observed in While Brown was studying how particles of pollen suspended in water moved erratically on a microscopic scale. The motion was caused by water molecules randomly buffeting the particle of pollen and he observed minute particles in the pollen grains executing the jittery motion.

However, it was only in that Albert Einstein, using a probabilistic model, could sufficiently explain Brownian motion. He observed that if the kinetic energy of fluids was right, the molecules of water moved at random. Thus, a small particle would receive a random number of impacts of random strength and from random directions in any short period of time. This random bombardment by the molecules of the fluid would cause a sufficiently small particle to move exactly just how Brown described it [2].

However, stock markets, the foreign exchange markets, commodity markets and bond markets are all assumed to follow Brownian motion, where assets are changing continually over very small intervals of time and the position, namely the change of state on the assets, is being altered by random amounts.

Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model

More importantly, the mathematical models used to describe Brownian motion are the fundamental tools on which all financial asset pricing and derivatives pricing models are based.

The purpose of this paper is to construct the Black Schools Option Pricing Model through the Brownian motion approach. Indeed, the basic continuous — time model for financial assets prices assumes that the log — returns of a given financial assets follow a Brownian motion with drift. A convenient way to understand Brownian motion is as a limit of random walk with smaller steps taking places more and more often. We expect that as k , these small steps become a continuous and the process Bk t :t 0 should converge to a process B t :t 0 with continuous sample paths.

We call this process Brownian motion after the Scottish botanist Robert Brown. Its properties will be derived next. Thus we deduce that the limiting process as k will posses stationary increments.

The distribution of any increments B t B s has a distribution that only depends on the length of the time interval t s.

Thus we deduce that the limiting process as k will also posses independent increments. Otherwise, it is called Brownian motion with 2 variance term and drift. Equation 13 known as geometric Brownian motion, with and called the drift parameter and the volatility parameters, respectively.

Equivalently, S is lognormally distributed. In other, words, it is probability that a variables with a standard normal distribution, 0,1 , will be less than x.

The variables c and p are the European call and put price, S 0 is the stock price at time zero, K is the strike price, r is the continuously compound risk — free rate, is the price volatility, and T is the time to maturity of the option.

Next, we considered a portfolio consisting of a long position in a European call option and a short position in a European put option and assumes that both contracts have the same underlying assets, time to maturity T and strike price K.

Remember that F0 is being determined such that the initial value of the contract is zero. We can now argue that by the law of one price, two portfolios that have the same value at a future in time need to have the same current value.

This general form of the put — call parity formula always applies and is the only one that we have to remember. In order to obtain the put — call parity relationship for the diffident underlying types, we just need to substitute the respective forward prices. As mentioned earlier, the fair delivery price F0 of a forward contract is determined such that the initial value of the contract is zero. While they can chart the path of the market on a minute by minute basis it is very hard for them to observe who downloads, who sells and how demand and supply affects price movements.

There exist many interesting theories about how the behavior of different investors makes the prices move, but Black Scholes Option Pricing Model — Brownian Motion Approach there is no empirical evidence to support the critical link between the investor decisions and the price dynamics [3]. These models are of key importance to the work that is being done here on market models and risk analysis. We consider a non dividend paying stock, the price process of which follows the P geometric Brownian motion with drift St e t Wt.

The logarithm of the stock price Yt In St follows the stochastic differential equation dYt dt dWt P 31 where and are constants representing the long term drift and the noisiness diffusion respectively in the stock price and Wt P is a regular Brownian motion representing Gaussian white noise with zero mean and correlation in time i.As stated above, a Markov process is a stochastic process.

What they do is, without knowing it, a crime against humanity. Interesting links. Its properties will be derived next. Dewyne and S. Merton, Journal of Financial Economics, , ; Otherwise, it is called Brownian motion with 2 variance term and drift.
