Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course builds on the foundations established in NBA 6730 (Derivative Securities I) and focuses on options markets. We will start with option types and strategies. Observing the limitations of model-free approach, we will then spend an important portion of our time on how to utilize models to price and understand options. Specifically, we will study binomial option pricing, the Black-Scholes model, and the associated Delta-Hedging. We will conclude with Volatility and Credit Risk.

When Offered Fall.
