The problem studied is the pricing of options on the CBOE
Skew index. The option pricing theory developed seeks to hedge the risk using
positions in the market for options on a related asset and the option is then
priced at the cost of this hedge. The theory is applied to pricing VIX options
using the market for SPY options and pricing options on JPM using the market
for XLF options. The approach is then applied to illustrate the pricing of CBOE
Skew Index options using the market for SPY options. The Skew Index smile
is then seen to imply the VIX and SKEW of the Skew Index itself.
The Financial Engineering Workshop will now be online only via Microsoft Teams.
