The growing interest of physical and mathematical researchers to new areas as: market modeling and prediction, risk management and option pricing, agent-based modeling, time series empirical analysis, is due mainly by the stochastic nature of most of the financial processes. Constraining by this interest it become actual to develop a comprehensive software environment, which in the frame of a common concept will use the same models, without the need of simplification for quantitative analysis. The main advantage for such approach is that it provides to the end-users (including also students) of rapid prototyping, high-quality visualization , and enhanced model testing. The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the usefulness and flexibility of the new MATLAB Financial Kit for development of the Option Pricing Tool. This Tool allows presentation of the obtained results in any convenient (for the user) form. It can start from loading the data (Database toolbox), Datafeed toolbox , EXEL link ), via the Financial toolbox (for quantitative modeling and analytical prototyping ) up to the results presentation (MATLAB Report Generator, MATLAB Runtime Server). This allows to take the existing MATLAB application and turn it into a stand-alone product.
