Dr. Pablo Olivares, Ryerson University
Title: Pricing and Hedging some Crack and Spark Contracts in Energy
Markets under Levy Processes Abstract: We discuss the pricing of some derivative contracts in the Energy market whose payoff depends on the value of multiple assets. In particular, we focus on European and Barrier options having electricity, gasoline, natural gas and uranium as underlying assets. In order to capture their particular dynamic, we consider models with discontinuous jumps and mean reverting properties. Several ad-hoc approximations and numerical issues are analysed.
