||The first option has been publicly traded for more than 30 years. With the progress of time, despite the European option is still the exchange-traded option. But evolved through the years, the European option has not meet people's needs, so exotic option was born. Similarly, the pricing model, from the traditional closed-form solution (under the Black-Scholes assumption), now commonly used binomial trees, finite difference, or by using the Monte Carlo simulation. The main impact of the following factors: the first, with the complexity of the option contract - from single asset to multi-assets, from the plain vanilla option to the path-dependent option, it is more difficult to find the closed-form solution of the option. Second, with the development of personal computers, making numerical computing is no longer a difficult task. It is precisely these two front reason, there will be the birth of this article. Himalaya option is also an exotic options. With the multi-assets and path dependent features, we want to find a closed-form solution is very difficult. Under multi-assets situation, the binomial tree and finite difference will be time-consuming calculation. Therefore, this paper is using Monte Carlo simulation of reasons.|
In this paper, we use Monte Carlo simulation to pricing Himalaya option, which includes several variance reduction techniques used to reduce sample variance. Finally, when pricing completed, we try to do a simple study to option hedging.
