This sample shows how some quantitative finance algorithms - based on Black-Scholes-Merton (1973) - can be implemented in Formulative.
The focus lies on the flow of the exposition, and a number of details that might be important in real-world applications are not touched upon.
Monte Carlo simulation
The evolution of a stock index over time is simulated via Monte Carlo techniques, selected results are visualized, and European option values are calculated. Monte Carlo simulation is a cornerstone for numerical option pricing as well as for risk management efforts involving value-at-risk calculations or credit value adjustments.
