Title
  • Displaced Diffusion as an Approximation of the Constant Elasticity of Variance
Author
  • Simona Svoboda-Greenwood
Physical Description

Notes
  • The CEV (constant elasticity of variance) and displaced diffusion processes have been posited as suitable alternatives to a lognormal process in modelling the dynamics of market variables such as stock prices and interest rates. Marris (1999) noted that, for a certain parameterization, option prices produced by the two processes display close correspondence across a range of strikes and maturities. This parametrization is a simple linearization of the CEV dynamics around the initial value of the underlying and we quantify the observed agreement in option prices by performing a small time expansion of the option prices around the forward-at-the-money value of the underlying. We show further results regarding the comparability of the conditional probability density functions of the two processes and hence the associated moments.
