Simultaneous Calibration and Quadratic Hedging of Options

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

We derive a sequential algorithm for simultaneous calibration and quadratic hedging of options.
It can be applied to any model from which we can simulate paths and price options. The quadratic
hedging comes at no extra cost!
We have calibrated the Bates and NIG-CIR model to S&P 500 index options in order to evaluate
various hedging strategies (delta, quadratic), clearly indicating the advantage of quadratic hedging
over delta hedging.
