### Binomial Option Pricing

This is based on the idea that prices can go up or down.  From that simple start, and using the ability to lend and borrow, we can determine the price of the option on the security.  The Wikipedia page makes it sound difficult, but start easy (the Bionic Turtle Video is a great starting point!)

"In an arbitrage-free world, if we have to create a portfolio comprising of these two assets (call option and underlying stock) such that irrespective of where the underlying price goes (\$110 or \$90), the net return on portfolio always remains the same. Suppose we buy ‘d’ shares of underlying and short one call option to create this portfolio."

### Binomial options pricing model

In finance, the binomial options pricing model (BOPM) provides a generalizable numerical method for the valuation of options. The binomial model was first proposed by Cox, Ross and Rubinstein in 1979. Essentially, the model uses a "discrete-time" ( lattice based) model of the varying price over time of the underlying financial instrument.

### Black-Scholes model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Black-Scholes or Black-Scholes-Merton model is a mathematical model of a financial market containing derivative investment instruments. From the model, one can deduce the Black-Scholes formula, which gives a theoretical estimate of the price of European-style options.
