Finance[AmericanSwaption] - create a new American-style swaption

 Calling Sequence AmericanSwaption(irswap, earliestexercise, latestexercise, opts)

Parameters

 irswap - simple swap data structures; interest rate swap earliestexercise - a non-negative constant, a string containing a date specification in a format recognized by ParseDate, or a date data structure; the earliest date or time when the option can be exercised latestexercise - a non-negative constant, a string containing a date specification in a format recognized by ParseDate, or a date data structure; the maturity time or date opts - (optional) equation(s) of the form option = value where option is one of referencedate or daycounter; specify options for the AmericanSwaption command

Description

 • The AmericanSwaption command creates a new American-style swaption with the specified payoff and maturity. The swaption can be exercised at any time between earliestexercise and latestexercise dates. This is the opposite of a European-style swaption, which can only be exercised on the date of expiration.
 • The parameter irswap is the underlying interest rate swap (see InterestRateSwap for more details).
 • The parameter earliestexercise specifies the earliest time or date when the option can be exercised. It can be given either as a non-negative constant or as a date in any of the formats recognized by the ParseDate command. If earlyexercise is given as a date, then the period between referencedate and earliestexercise will be converted to a fraction of the year according to the day count convention specified by daycounter. Typically the value of this option is $0$, which means that the option can be exercised at any time until the maturity. Note that the time of the earliest exercise must precede the maturity time.
 • The parameter latestexercise specifies the maturity time of the option. It can be given either as a non-negative constant or as a date in any of the formats recognized by the ParseDate command. If earlyexercise is given as a date, then the period between referencedate and latestexercise will be converted to a fraction of the year according to the day count convention specified by daycounter.
 • The LatticePrice command can be used to price an American-style swaption using any given binomial or trinomial tree.
