“Early Exercise Options: Upper Bounds”Coauthor(s): Leif Andersen.
Editors: Rama Cont
In this article, we discuss how to generate upper bounds for American or Bermudan securities by Monte Carlo methods. These techniques provide a useful supplement to strategies that provide lower bound estimates (e.g. eqf13-006 and eqf13-025), allowing one to both generate valid confidence intervals for the true option price and to test the accuracy to any proposed approximation to the optimal exercise strategy.
