An Autoregressive Conditional Binomial Option Pricing Model
This paper offers an option pricing framework grounded in econometric microstructure modelling. We consider a model where stock price dynamics follow a pure jump process with constant jump size similar to a binomial setting with random time steps. Jump arrival times are described as an Autoregressive Conditional Duration (ACD) process while conditional probabilities of up-moves and down-moves are given by the logistic transformation of an autoregressive prices. We derive no-arbitrage pricing formulae under the minimal martingale measure and illustrate the use of our Autoregressive Conditional Binomial (ACB) option pricing model on intraday IBM stock date.
