Static Hedging of Barrier Options under General Asset Dynamics: Unification and Application
A new method for static hedging of barrier options under general asset dynamics is introduced. The method unifies previous approaches and nests their extensions. Using a finite set of hedge instruments the method is directly implementable and it is shown how to operationalize the hedge in a jump-diffusion model with correlated stochastic volatility. The performance of the hedge is thoroughly studied and generic sources of hedge errors are addressed.
