Abstract

We consider the following models:

1. Generalization of a local volatility model rolled with a moving average of the spot: dS = mu Sdt + sigma(S/A)SdW$ where A(t) is a moving average of spot S.

2. Generalization of Heston pure stochastic volatility model rolled with a moving average of the stochastic volatility: dS = mu Sdt + sigma SdW, dsigma^2 = k(theta - sigma^2)dt + gamma sigma dZ where theta(t) is a moving average of variance sigma^2.

3. Generalization of a full stochastic volatility with the process for volatility depending on both sigma and S and rolled with a moving average of S: dS = mu Sdt + sigma SdW, dsigma = a(sigma, S/A)dt + b(sigma, S/A)dZ,
corr(dW, dZ) = rho(sigma, S/A)$, where A(t) is a moving average of the spot S.

We will generalize these and other ideas further and show that they lead to a 2-factor pure stochastic volatility model: dS = mu Sdt + sigma SdW$, sigma = sigma(v_1, v_2), dv_1 = a_1(v_1, v_2)dt + b_1(v_1, v_2)dZ_1,
dv_2 = a_2(v_1, v_2)dt + b_2(v_1, v_2)dZ_2, corr(dW, dZ_1) = rho_1(v_1, v_2), corr(dW, dZ_2) = rho_2(v_1, v_2), corr(dZ_1, dZ_2) = rho_3(v_1, v_2) and give examples of analytically solvable models, applicable for multicurrency models consistent with cross currency pairs dynamics in FX. We also consider jumps and stochastic interest rates.
