An Interpretation of Czech FX Options
This paper opens with a brief description of the Czech FX options market. Several case studies of the Czech koruna option market illustrate how options reflect market sentiment and structural breaks. Risk-neutral implied distributions are suggested as a monitoring tool. Moreover, clear indications of the rational, forward-looking behavior of option prices were identified before the Czech Republic?s 1997 currency crisis, and the results of statistical tests support the ?rational market? hypothesis.
