Abstract: Bernardo and Ledoit (2000) develop a very appealing framework to compute pricing bounds based on the so-called gain-loss ratio. Their method has many advantages and very interesting properties and so far one important drawback: the complexity of the numerical computation of the pricing bounds. In this note we provide an simple procedure for their computation which only entails solving a linear optimization program.

Keywords: asset price bounds; gain-loss ratio; linear programming
