A text/disk package for undergraduate and graduate students in elective courses in business and economics, covering much of the same material as the author's previous text, Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives , but in a way that readers with limited training in mathematics will find easier to understand. Part I covers futures and swaps markets, and Part II, the bulk of the book, covers options markets. Includes chapter quiz questions and explained answers, additional questions and problems, mathematical appendices, and a glossary. This third edition features a new chapter on value at risk, and new material on swaps, volatility smiles, and standard market models for bond options, interest-rate caps and floors, and European swap options. The accompanying disk contains new Windows-based software specifically designed to complement the text, allowing readers to value different options, display binomial trees, and plot relationships between variables. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Publisher:

This introduction to futures and options markets is ideal for those with limited background in mathematics.

From the Back Cover:

This introduction to futures and options markets is ideal for readers with limited backgrounds in mathematics. Emphasizing the use of binomial trees for explaining how options are priced, it shows how one- and two-step binomial trees can be analyzed and includes comprehensive treatment of numerical procedures based on bionomial trees. The book also devotes one entire chapter to swaps and one to options on futures. The third edition of Introduction to Futures and Options Markets has been revised to include an explanation of swaps that reflects their use for asset management and liability management. It discusses daycount conventions, scenario analysis, and value-at-risk. And, it includes a revised Chapter 16 that focuses on the volatility smiles observed for equity and currency options and a revised Chapter 17 to provide background information on mortgage-backed securities and explain standard market models used to value European bond options, interest-rate caps and floors, and European swap options. An essential reference book for every investor and investment professional.
