A Note on a Barrier Exchange Option: The World’s Simplest Option Formula?
() and Svein-Arne Persson
Abstract: The paper analyzes a barrier exchange option that is
knocked out the first time the two underlying assets have identical market
values. Under rather general conditions regarding the price processes for
the underlying assets, probably the world’s simplest option pricing formula
is derived. It applies both to options of American and European type.
