Shuai Gao, Jun Zhao

Abstract


50ETF appears on the Chinese stock market on 9th February,2015, the contracts are European Options and the options are priced by B-S model.50ETF is the only one option that can be traded, there are no American Options in Chinese stock market. This paper studies 50ETF pricing analysis in accordance with the way of American Option. We use Least Squares Monte Carlo Simulation to price 50ETF and analyze them, give the numerical results by matlab program. This issue is worth studying, because the paper studies 50ETF, and price it in the way of American Options, we try to employ Monte Carlo Simulation to solve this problem in china and the results of the paper can enrich the option products in the stock market of China.
