Description Description This book covers foreign exchange options from the point of view of the finance practitioner. It contains everything a quant or trader working in a bank or hedge fund would need to know about the mathematics of foreign exchange not just the theoretical mathematics covered in other books but also comprehensive coverage of implementation, pricing and calibration. Given a Black—Scholes price for an option, one can calculate the change in that price for infinitesimal changes in the underlying spot rate or forward rate for that matter. It contains everything a quant or trader working in a bank or hedge fund would need to know about the mathematics of foreign exchange—not just the theoretical mathematics covered in other books but also comprehensive coverage of implementation, pricing and calibration. Dr Clark is a regular speaker at key finance events, and has presented at London Imperial College, The Bachelier Society Annual Conference, London Imperial College, world business Strategies annual Conference, Risk events, Marcus Evans events and many more. This book covers foreign exchange options from the point of view of the finance practitioner. Crucially, this book describes the numerical methods required for calibration of these models — an area often neglected in the literature, which is nevertheless of paramount importance in practice.

The assumption of constant interest rates in foreign and domestic currencies is inadequate, as is the assumption of a single volatility σ sufficient to price options of different maturities and strikes correctly.

Crucially, this book describes the numerical methods required for calibration of these models an area often neglected in the literature, which is nevertheless of paramount importance in practice. We have already shown how Black—Scholes term structure models can remedy some of these deficiencies, but the inability of a Black—Scholes model equipped solely with a single volatility to price options of various strikes cannot be remedied by the imposition of a term structure.

This book covers foreign exchange options from the point of view of the finance practitioner. This gives us the notion of the option delta, which is normally thought of as the instantaneous sensitivity of the price to infinitesimal changes in the price of the underlying asset.
