The spot price AUD/USD is 0.6868, strike price is 0.6915,the 6 month ATM implied volatility for AUD/USD is 7.7% p.a., for the 6 month USD deposit rate is 2.28% and the 6 month AUD deposit rate is 1.45% p.a. Deposits are continuously compounded and the covered interest rate parity works perfectly. Underlying asset is a currency forward or currency spot. Compute the price of European put option.
My question is: is the rate for the AUD deposit (foreign rate) actually a dividend rate? If not, is it okay to only use USD deposit rate in binomial model(code below).If it is a dividend rate, how can I add dividends to this function? I tried to solve my problem reading this,but it didnt help much.
