Round to 4 decimal places for d and N(d) and to 2 decimal places for prices. Use the
provided look up table for N(d) OR use the NORM.DIST(d,0,1,1) function in Micro-

3 Points, open text answer, max 75 words
A so-called “Strangle strategy” consists of a long Call with exercise price KCall and long Put
option with exercise price KPut and for this strategy, it holds that KPut < KCall . You apply
this strategy on a stock with the following properties:
? Current market price: S0 = 20
? Volatility: σ = 25%
? Risk free interest rate r = x.y% p.a.
The last two digits of your student number determine the risk free interest rate.
For example, if your student number is 40123456, the last two digits are x = 5 and y = 6,
and the risk-free interest rate would be r = 5.6%.
If your student number ends with “00,” apply r = 1.0%.
You invest in this strategy for T = 12 months.
b) What is your student number? (0 Points)
c) What interest rate are you applying? (0 Points)

d) Use the BSM to calculate the price of a Call option with KCall = 22.
4 Points, enter the price as numbers
e) Calculate the price of a Put option with KPut = 18.
4 Points, enter the price as numbers
f) Calculate the intrinsic and time value for both options.
g) Discuss the value of this option strategy at maturity if the price of the underlying
does not change. Make use of the concepts of intrinsic and time value. How can you
measure the change in time value?
