Both barrier options and the Heston stochastic volatility model are omnipresent in real-life applications of financial mathematics. In this paper, we apply the Heath–Platen (HP) estimator (as first introduced by Heath and Platen in [12]) to price barrier options in the Heston model setting as an alternative to conventional Monte Carlo methods and PDE based methods. We demonstrate the ...

Each Heston model consists of two coupled univariate models: A geometric Brownian motion (gbm) model with a stochastic volatility function. d X 1 t = B (t) X 1 t d t + X 2 t X 1 t d W 1 t. This model usually corresponds to a price process whose volatility (variance rate) is governed by the second univariate model. ...

Monte Carlo pricing of continuous barrier options with Heston. 11/28/2016. 0 Comments. Pricing discretely monitored barrier options with Monte Carlo comes natural. One just mimics what would really happen, which is to check if the underlying asset crosses the barrier at specific times only. The "simulation" bias is thus zero.In this paper, we examine the limits of asset prices when volatility parameters tend to infinity. Above all, we investigate their convergence behavior within the Black-Scholes model and the stochastic volatility model of Heston. We observe on the one hand that asset prices as well as their arithmetic means converge to zero almost surely, while the respective expectations are constantly equal ...

It is based on advanced Monte Carlo simulations. Compared to an 8-core Intel Xeon Server running at 3.07GHz, our hybrid FPGA-CPU-system saves 89% of the energy and provides around twice the speed.Monte Carlo Simulation of Financial Time Series: an Example of Heston'S Model Monte Carlo simulation method can be used as a tool to simulate financial time series. Then one can work with these financial data for further researches. We consider a return model introducing stochastic volatility, namely the Heston's model put forward in 1993. ...
