Static replication of barrier options: some general results

Leif B. G. Andersen, Jesper Andreasen, David Eliezer

ABSTRACT

This paper presents a number of new theoretical results for the replication of barrier options through a static portfolio of European put and call options. Our results are valid for options with completely general knock-out/knock-in sets, and allow for time- and state-dependent volatility as well as discontinuous asset dynamics. We illustrate the theory with numerical examples and discuss practical implementation.
