The price of the call option is $5, while the price of the put option is $4. Create a table and a diagram illustrating the profit at termination from these positions for various levels in the price of the underlying. On one chart draw a graph showing the profit for the put, call and combined position. Why might a trader choose to exercise such a strategy? Please show all steps and equations used.

Answer #1

1. A trader buys a call option with a strike price of €45 and a
put option with a strike price of €40. Both options have the same
maturity. The call costs €3 and the put costs €4. Draw a diagram
showing the variation of the trader’s profit with the asset price.
Explain the purpose of this strategy

Q4. A trader longs a European call and shorts a European put
option. The options have the same underlying asset, strike price
and maturity. Please depict the trader’s position. Under what
conditions is the value of position equal to zero? (Hint: compare
the payoff pattern of the option position with that of a forward
contract.)

A trader sells a European call option on a share for 4 SEK. The
stock price is 47 SEK and the strike price is 50 SEK. Under what
circumstances does the trader make a profit? Under what
circumstances will the option be exercised? Draw a diagram showing
the variation of the trader’s profit with the stock price at the
maturity of the option.
Please carefully label: Breakeven point, profit, loss and don't
forget the diagram.. thanks in advance!

You buy a put option with strike price of $40 and simultaneously
buy two call options with the same strike price, $40. Currently,
the market value of the underlying asset is $39. The put option
premium is $2.50 and a call option sells for $3.25. Assume that the
contract is for 1 unit of the underlying asset. Assume the interest
rate is 0%. Draw a diagram depicting the net payoff (profit
diagram) of your position at expiration as a function...

A trader conducts a trading strategy by selling a call option
with a strike price of $50 for $3 and selling a put option with a
strike price of $40 for $4. Please draw a profit diagram of this
strategy and identify the maximum gain, maximum
loss, and break-even point. Hint: Write down a profit
analysis matrix to help you draw the payoff lines.

A strap option strategy is created by purchasing two call
options and one put option of the same underlying stock. The
options have the same exercise price (E=50) and same expiration
date.
a) What is the payoff of the strategy is the stock price is
$0?
c) What is the payoff of the strategy is the stock price is
$100?

The strike price for a European call and put option is $56 and
the expiration date for the call and the put is in 9 months. Assume
the call sells for $6, while the put sells for $7. The price of the
stock underlying the call and the put is $55 and the risk free rate
is 3% per annum based on continuous compounding. Identify any
arbitrage opportunity and explain what the trader should do to
capitalize on that opportunity....

The price of a European call that expires in six months and has
a strike price of $28 is $2. The underlying stock price is $28, and
a dividend of $1 is expected in 4 months. The term structure is
flat, with all risk-free interest rates being 6%. If the price of a
European put option with the same maturity and strike price is $3,
what will be the arbitrage profit at the maturity?

The price of a stock is $40. The price of a one-year European
put option on the stock with a strike price of $30 is quoted as $7
and the price of a one-year European call option on the stock with
a strike price of $50 is quoted as $5. Suppose that an investor
buys 100 shares, shorts 100 call options, and buys 100 put
options.
