Abstract:By extending the GARCH option pricing model of Duan (1995) to more flexible volatility estimation it is shown that the prices of out-of-the-money options strongly depend on volatility features such as asymmetry. Results are provided for the properties of the stationary pricing distribution in the case of a threshold GARCH model. For a stock index series with a pronounced leverage effect, simulated threshold GARCH option prices are substantially closer to observed market prices than the Black/Scholes and simulated GARCH prices.
