Conservative delta hedging under transaction costs
Explicit robust hedging strategies for convex or concave payoffs under a continuous semimartingale model with uncertainty and small transaction costs are constructed. In an asymptotic sense, the upper and lower bounds of the cumulative volatility enable us to super-hedge convex and concave payoffs respectively. The idea is a combination of Mykland's conservative delta hedging and Leland's enlarging volatility. We use a specific sequence of stopping times as rebalancing dates, which can be superior to equidistant one even when there is no model uncertainty. A central limit theorem for the super-hedging error as the coefficient of linear transaction costs tends to zero is proved. The mean squared error is also studied.
