Option Hedging Examples

2-factor Hedging Assume the IBM stock position from before. Assume the IBM stock position from before. 100 shares of IBM covered by 1.32 call options. 100 shares of IBM covered by 1.32 call options. Remember slippage with only delta hedge (1.3% Stock Price change met with only.04% change in portfolio) Remember slippage with only delta hedge (1.3% Stock Price change met with only.04% change in portfolio)

Eliminate Slippage Delta – Gamma hedge Delta – Gamma hedge Stock: Delta = 1, Gamma = 0 Stock: Delta = 1, Gamma = 0 Call Option: Delta =.7580, Gamma =.02944 Call Option: Delta =.7580, Gamma =.02944 Need additional option: Need additional option: IBM 6-mo., X=80 call IBM 6-mo., X=80 call Delta =.4035Gamma =.03651 Delta =.4035Gamma =.03651

Simultaneous Equations In general: In general:  S N s +  C 1 N C1 +  C 2 N C2 = 0  S N s +  C 1 N C1 +  C 2 N C2 = 0  (  S) N s +  (  C 1 ) N C1 +  (  C 2 ) N C2 = 0,  (  S) N s +  (  C 1 ) N C1 +  (  C 2 ) N C2 = 0, where:  S = 1,  C 1 =  C1,  C 2 =  C2,  (  S) = 0,  (  C 1 ) =  C1,  (  C 2 ) =  C2  (  S) = 0,  (  C 1 ) =  C1,  (  C 2 ) =  C2 Point is to solve for N C1 and N C2. Point is to solve for N C1 and N C2.
