— Predictability in the asset return and hence the volatility has remained a topic of great concern among the institutional and private investors. The underlying asset in our case is the Bank NIFTY futures. We have tried to predict the volatility using different methods using time series data which are based on historical approach. Then we applied Black- Scholes Option Pricing Model formulae to calculate the option price of Bank Nifty option. We then compared the prices with the actual market trading data of the Bank Nifty option.
— Option pricing, volatality, Black-Scholes formula.
