"Martingalized historical approach for option pricing"
by C. Chorro, D. Guegan, F. Ielpo
in the Finance Research Letter Vol. 7, 2010, 24 – 28.
In a discrete time option pricing framework, we compare the empirical performance of two pricing methodologies, namely the affine stochastic discount factor and the empirical martingale correction methodologies. Using a dataset of S&P500 index options, the differences are found to be small: the higher order moment correction involved in the SDF approach may not be that essential to reduce option pricing errors.
