Option pricing model

The conventional method to assess option prices. This model incorporates six factors into its pricing assumptions: the underlying security price, the strike price, the time until expiration, any dividends to be paid, the level of interest rates, and the volatility of the stock. This model assumes that stock price movement is random with no directional bias except for a slight upward bias related to carrying costs equal to the interest rate.
