Arbitrage hedging strategy and one more explanation of the volatility smile


  • Mikhail Martynov
  • Olga Rozanova


We present an explicit hedging strategy, which enables to prove arbitrageness of market incorporating at least two assets depending on the same random factor. The implied Black-Scholes volatility, computed taking into account the form of the graph of the option price, related to our strategy, demonstrates the "skewness" inherent to the observational data.
