# Black_Scholes#

Functions

 `simulate_Black_Scholes`(S0, mu, sigma, T, dt) Calculates a temporal series of stock prices using the Black Scholes log normal model and the generated Brownian motion
simulate_Black_Scholes(S0, mu, sigma, T, dt) DataFrame[source]#

Calculates a temporal series of stock prices using the Black Scholes log normal model and the generated Brownian motion

stock_price_simulation = simulate_Black_Scholes(S0, mu, sigma, T, dt)

Parameters:
• S0 – integer, specifying the initial value of the underlying asset

• mu – float, specifying the drift rate of the underlying asset

• sigma – float, standard deviation of the underlying asset’s return

• T – integer, specifying the maximum modeling time. ex. if T = 2 then modelling time will run from 0 to 2

• dt – float, specifying the length of each subinterval. ex. dt=10, then there will be 10 intervals of length 0.1 between two integers of modeling time

Returns:

stock_price_simulation = N x 2 pandas DataFrame where index is modeling time and values are a realisation of the uderlying’s price

Example

Model the price of a stock whitch is worth today 100. The market has a future annualized risk free rate of 5% and an annualized volatility of 30%. The user is interested in a price projection for the next 10 years in increments of 6 months (0.5 years):
