Double Barrier Options In Regime-Switching Hyper-Exponential Jump-Diffusion Models
AbstractWe present a very fast and accurate algorithm for calculating prices of finite lived double barrier options with arbitrary terminal payoff functions under regime-switching hyper-exponential jump-diffusion (HEJD) models, which generalize the double-exponential jump-diffusion model pioneered by Kou and Lipton. Numerical tests demonstrate an excellent agreement of our results with those obtained using other methods, as well as a significant increase in computation speed (sometimes by a factor of 5). The first step of our approach is Carr's randomization, whose convergence we prove for barrier and double barrier options under strong Markov processes of a wide class. The resulting sequence of perpetual option pricing problems is solved using an efficient iteration algorithm and the Wiener-Hopf factorization.
