Martingalized Historical approach for Option Pricing
AbstractIn a discrete time option pricing framework, we compare the empirical performance of two pricing methodologies, namely the affine stochastic discount factor and the empirical martingale correction methodologies. Using a CAC 40 options dataset, the differences are found to be small : the higher order moment correction involved in the SDF approach may not be that essential to reduce option pricing errors.
