Question

Using the Black Scholes model. If the current price of oil is $20.86 per barrel, the risk free interest rate is 2.0%, the cost to store oil for one year is 10% of the price and the standard deviation of oil prices is 0.6255, what is the price of a 1-year call option on oil with a strike price of $34.15 per barrel?

Answer #1

The value of a call option is given by the Black Scholes model

where S is the storing cost adjusted current price = 20.86*1.1 = $22.946

K is the strike price = 34.15

Risk free rate r = 0.02

Volatility = 0.6255

d1 = (ln(22.946/34.15) + (0.02+ (0.6255*0.6255/2)))/(0.6255*1) = -0.291

d2 = -0.291 - 0.6255*1 = -0.9165

N(d1) = 0.3855

N(d2) = 0.1797

Substituting, we get

c = 22.946*0.3855 - (34.15*0.1797*e^(-0.02)) = 2.83

**Hence the price of a 1 year call option c =
$2.83**

with a current price of $100 and standard deviation of 30 percent
per year. The option’s exercise price is $110, and it expires in 1
year. The risk-free rate is 3 percent per year

Black-Scholes Model Use the Black-Scholes Model to find the
price for a call option with the following inputs: (1) Current
stock price is $21. (2) Strike price is $24. (3) Time to expiration
is 5 months. (4) Annualized risk-free rate is 4%. (5) Variance of
stock return is 0.17. Round your answer to the nearest cent. In
your calculations round normal distribution values to 4 decimal
places.
