Pricing moving average barrier options

J. P. Heritage


A moving average up-and-out call option differs from an up-and-out call option in that knock-out occurs when a moving average price process reaches the barrier. This paper considers two such options that differ in the precise conditions for knock-out. In the Black–Scholes model, approximate prices are obtained for these options in terms of the prices of up-and-out call options. The price obtained for one of the options is compared with prices obtained by simulation.
