Does the Market Beat Midas Conditional on Federal Reserve Policy?Sammon, Marco C.
This paper examines algorithms implemented in MATLAB that can be used to solve systems of Black-Scholes equations for implied volatility and implied risk-free rate. These algorithms were run on a dataset of almost 400,000 call options traded between 2003 and 2012. After adjusting for volatility skew, the options are re-priced using these model-implied parameters in the Black-Scholes equation. ... read more
