Abstract

We show how to calculate European-style option prices when the log-stock price process follows a Leacutevy-Stable process with index parameter 1 ≤ agr ≤ 2 and skewness parameter -1 ≤ β ≤ 1. Key to our result is to model integrated variance RQUF_A_375020_O_XML_IMAGES\RQUF_A_375020_O_ILM0001.gif as an increasing Leacutevy-Stable process with continuous paths in T.
