Bubbles

3
What is a Bubble? Bubbles are often associated with a large increase in the asset price followed by a collapse when the bubble bursts. In the context of financial markets, bubbles refer to asset prices that exceed the asset's fundamental, intrinsic value possibly because those that own the asset believe that they can sell the asset at a higher price in the future.

Using Options to Find

What is an Option? When time T comes along, the call option gives its owner the right, but not the obligation, to buy one unit of the financial asset at price K. StrikeMaturity

Concluding Remarks

42
Conclusions A promising approach to implementing the bubble test. The non-parametric approach we used might have been slightly too ambitious. Fitting options prices rather than volatilities might have compounded the problem.

43
Other Approaches Use some sort of spline ( Reconstructing the Unknown Volatility Function, Coleman, Li and Verma, Computation of Deterministic Volatility Surfaces, Jackson, Suli and Howison, Improved Implementation of Local Volatility and Its Application to S&P 500 Index Options, 2010.) Estimate the local volatility via the implied volatility.

44
Other Approaches Assume the volatility is piecewise constant, and solve the Dupire Equation to find the best constants. ( Volatility Interpolation, Andreasen and Huge, 2011). Assume some sort of parametric pricing model (such as Heston or SABR), fit to option price data and then deduce local volatility.
