Finally, then, the value of the option at time 0 is 15. 2. We write (φi , ψi ) for the amount of stock and bond held in the portfolio over the time interval [(i − 1)δt, iδt). • • • • At time 0, we are given 15 for the option. 5. 5 units of stock, which costs 50, and we borrow 35 in cash bonds. Suppose that S1 = 120. 25 units of stock, taking our total bond borrowing to 65. Suppose that S2 = 140. Now φ = (60 − 20)/(160 − 120) = 1, so we buy still more stock, to take our holding up to 1 unit and our total borrowing to 100 bonds.

The table below summarises our stock and bond holding if the stock price follows another path through the tree. 50 — −35 −15 −40 26 trees and martingales Notice that all of the processes {Si }0≤i≤N , {Vi }0≤i≤N , {φi }1≤i≤N , {ψi }1≤i≤N depend on the sequence of up and down jumps. In particular, {φi }1≤i≤N and {ψi }1≤i≤N are random too. We do not know the dynamics of the portfolio at time 0. However, we do know that our portfolio is self-financing. The portfolio that we hold over [i +1, i +2) can be bought with the proceeds of liquidating (at time i + 1) the portfolio that we held over the time interval [i, i + 1) – there is no need for any extra input of cash.

N δt = T are known. We denote by the set of all possible ‘paths’ that the stock price vector can K. 2 tells us that the absence of arbitrage is equivalent to the existence of a probability measure, Q, on that assigns strictly positive mass to every ω ∈ and such that (r ) Sr −1 = ψ0 EQ [Sr |Sr −1 ], (r ) where Sr is the vector of stock prices at time r and ψ0 is the discount on riskless borrowing over [(r − 1)δt, r δt]. If, as above, we consider the discounted stock prices, { S˜ j }0≤ j≤N , given by S˜ j = j (i) i=1 ψ0 S j , then EQ [ S˜r | S˜1 , .
