8.3.4 Probabilistic Characterization of the Put Price Presenter: Chih-tai,Shen Jan,05 2012 Stat,NCU Slide 2 Outline Theorem 8.3.5 Corollary 8.3.6 Slide 3 Theorem 8.3.5 Slide 4 Slide 5 Slide 6 Slide 7 Corollary 8.3.6 Slide 8 Slide 9 Slide 10 (ii) Slide 11 Discounted European option prices are martingales under the risk-neutral probability measure. Discounted American option prices are martingales up to the time they should be exercised. If they are not exercised when they should be, they tend downward. Since a martingale is a special case of a supermartingale, and processes that tend downward are supermartingales, discounted American option prices are supermart ingales.
