# Antithetic sampling on non-linear payoff?

If I wish to price an option with Monte Carlo using the standard GBM process, which have payoff

$(max(S-K,0))^2$

Why is it not suitable for a non-linear payoff?

• Note: the squared term is always positive, so the $max$ part is superfluous – dm63 Jul 10 '18 at 13:59
• @dm63 yes you are right, I meant the squared bracket outside the MAX function. Will edit. Thanks for letting me know – RothNorth Jul 11 '18 at 8:28
• First this is a poorly worded question. How does one know what "it" is, without reading the title? Second, from what source do you allege "it" is not suitable? – Hans Jul 12 '18 at 1:29
