An equity derivative is a contract whose value is at least partly derived from one or more underlying equity securities. The Financial Instruments Toolbox™ provides additional functionality to price, compute sensitivity and hedging analysis to many equity securities. You can price Vanilla, Asian, Lookback, Barrier, and Spread options with pricing models that include lattice models, Monte Carlo simulations, and multiple closed-form solutions. For more information, see Price Equity, FX, Commodity, or Energy Instruments (Financial Instruments Toolbox).

Compute prices, sensitivities, and profits for portfolios of equity options using the Black-Scholes model for European options and the binomial model for American options.
This example creates an equity option portfolio using the Black-Scholes model for European options that is simultaneously delta, gamma, and vega neutral.
This example creates a three-dimensional plot showing how gamma changes relative to price for a Black-Scholes option.
This example plots gamma as a function of price and time for a portfolio of ten Black-Scholes options.
This example shows how to learn an optimal option hedging policy and outperform the traditional BSM approach using Reinforcement Learning Toolbox™ .
