Tutor description

An option is a sort of agreement between a seller and a buyer to sell stock at a fixed price and on or before and specific date. Option trading gives the right to the buyer to buy or not to buy that means he has got the choice to make the decision.

The results obtained usingFinnertys formula appear to exceed the upper bound significantly. I investigate the source of theinconsistency and propose an adjusted closed-form formula for the price of the arithmetic average strike putoption and the associated marketability discount. The adjusted formula is within the established lower andupper bounds, and agrees with numerical simulation results.Analysis and Critique of the Average Strike Put OptionMarketability Discount ModelIntroductionIt is well documented in a number of empirical studies that the values of securities are affected by theirrelative marketability.
