Replication

To replicate the payout of an option by buying or selling other instruments. In the case of dynamic replication, this involves dynamically buying or selling the underlying (or futures, where transaction costs are cheaper) in proportion to an option’s delta. In the case of static replication, the option is hedged with a basket of standard options whose composition does not change with time.
