Project 2 (50% of the final mark)

Path dependent options pricing

using object-oriented programming

C++ Programming with Applications to Finance Spring 2021

The aim of this project is to create a program in C++ that can be used to study the prices of Path

Dependent on an underlying asset driven by a binomial model in discrete time. Your program

should be accompanied by end-user and developer documentation. The project is aimed at testing

your knowledge from the Term 2 of the course and must be implemented in the object-oriented

programming paradigm. You must use object-oriented approach when creating this project.

A path dependent option is an exotic option that's value depends not only on the price of the

underlying asset but the path that asset took during all or part of the life of the option.

(source: Investopedia)

We assume that the price of the underlying is strictly positive at moment 0 (S0 = S(0) > 0) and at

each moment t in can either move up (1+u) times or down (1+d) times. As always in the binomial

model there is a risk-free security growing by a factor (1+r) during each time step. For more

details on binomial model please see Capinski & Zastawniak (2012) pp. 1-2.

Further we use S(t) for the price of the underlying asset at moment t, K for the strike, T for

maturity and A(0,T) for the average price for the period [0, T].

You should create a project that includes pricing of four types of path dependent options: a

lookback option, a fixed strike Asian call option (with arithmetic average), a Parisian option and

the one that we will refer to as Consecutive Growth option.

A lookback option is a path dependent option where the option owner has the right to buy the

underlying instrument at its lowest price over some preceding period:

Fixed strike Asian call payoff is given by

The payoff of a standard Parisian option is dependent on the maximum amount of time the

underlying asset value has spent consecutively above or below a strike price

. Notice that we

consider the maximal number of consecutive moments (not the periods between the moments)

when the price S(t) of the underlying is at or above some strike value K, and the payoff equals the

number of the moments in such streak. If at all moments from 0 to T the price S(t) is below K (i.e.,
