Using stochastic volatility to price options

Discussion in 'Options' started by Steven676, Jul 12, 2011.

  1. Hello,

    Where can I find a trading platform, spreadsheet, website, etc. where I can use stochastic volatility to model prices for options? Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

    pretty sure you can do this in R then export to spreadsheet if you wish...if you don't program in R, its pretty easy to learn(very similar to matlab if you know how to program in that)

    This should be fairly easy to do in R.

    Instinet has an options platform that we offer called Trade Speed that allows you to create your own option skew or match the current one.

    What is "R"
  6. A statistical package... Sorta like a public domain Matlab, but more geared towards statistics and time series analysis.

    Hoadley is inexpensive and has SABR. Fincad has Heston and local vol but expensive. Another alternative is the book "options pricing and volatility in VBA". I believe it has a chapter on Heston

    Good luck
