# Put/call Option Relation Exercice

## Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm a total beginner and want to learn about trading. I've read some books and websites and found this one; the articles are really helpful!

While studying options, I've come across the following question and I don't know how to solve it:

Suppose you know the following:

- Future is at 66

- 50-60 put spread is at 2.5

- 50-60-70 put fly is at .2

- Assume volatility is constant across strikes

Using the prices given and relationships between options of various strikes, what are the fair values for the 80 Call, 60 Straddle, and 40 Put? Assume we had a volatility smile among the curve, how would this make your markets different?

Here is what I think: let's denote by p(K) and c(K) the put and call with strike K (assume sigma, time to maturity T, risk free r are constant and the same for all options). We know that

p(70)+c(70)=27

-p(50)+p(60)=2.5

p(50)-2*p(60)+p(70)=0.2

We also know that put-call party holds, i.e. c+K e^(-r*T)=p+S_0 and the price of the forward F=S_0*e^(r*T)=66.

From this information how do I compute c(80), p(40) and p(60)+c(60)? What do they mean by "relationships between options of various strikes"?

Thanks!

I had a bad experience in trading. I did lost \$17,350 in total and i when i try to cash out one story or the other keep coming up to me at every giving point of time so i give up on them.after several weeks i came across this agency,expert recovery that help me get back about 75 percent of my lost funds. I learnt thee is a class action court proceeding to sue scam binary companies but I believe that takes more time and money paid to lawyers is way expensive. You can talk to a recovery expert.

Let's assume I was able to imply dividends from liquid options for the next 3 years, but I want to price an option expiring in the 4rd year from now. How would practitioners normally extrapolate implied dividends? From what i've observed there is a significant risk premium in implied dividends far out (implied divs are sold at discount). Actually the dividend term structure is declining. Therefore probably it makes more sense to extrapolate implied dividend rather than historical growth
