12. A forward contract on an underlying stock S stipulated at initial time t = 0 and with maturity time t = T is a European-style claim with payoff ST − F0 at time T. Here F0 is the forward price at time t = 0. Forward contracts are entered at the equilibrium forward price F0 , for which their present value is zero. 207) Indeed, to replicate the pay-off of a forward contract one can buy the underlying stock at price S0 and carry it to maturity while funding the purchase with a loan to be returned also at maturity.
Setting ¯ = r¯ gives the risk-neutral conditional probability density for a stock attaining a value St at time t > 0 given an initial value S0 at time t = 0. Hence, the Black–Scholes pricing formula for European options can also be obtained by taking discounted expectations of payoff functions with respect to this risk-neutral density. 165) with drift ¯ = r¯ T . 155) shows that stock prices drift at the time-averaged risk-free rate r(t) at time t. As will become apparent in the following sections, this must be the case in order to ensure arbitrage-free pricing.
Here r is the yield up to time T. 5), in this case r is defined with the continuously compounded rule; we refer again to Chapter 2 for a more systematic discussion of fixed-income terminology. Let’s consider a situation where St is contained in the half-line of positive real numbers + . Let P be the real-world measure with density p(S); P is inferred through statistical estimations based on historical data. Pricing measures, instead, are evaluated as the result of a calibration procedure starting from option prices.
