### Assumption in black scholes solution

Under the usual notations, In most textbooks on Quantative Finance, for deriving the Black-Scholes solution I find that authors, while setting up the riskless portfolio, assume that, \text{d} (\...

### Replicating a portfolio with a certain payoff function

Assume there are two stocks $S_1$ with price $p_1(t)$ and $S_2$ with price $p_2(t)$ where $t$ indicates time. Assume, there is a hypothetical derivative $D$, which is such that, price of $D$ at a time ...

### Dynamic Delta Hedging And a Self Financing Portfolio

Let's assume the usual Black Scholes assumptions hold. My question is related to an answer on this question. There, the weights ($\Delta_t^1$,$\Delta_t^2$) are derived which form a locally risk free ...

### Derivation of BS PDE problem using Delta hedging

I've always been confused with Delta hedging. It is well-known that for a (smooth enough) function of $(S,t)$ we have, due to Ito's lemma, that: \begin{eqnarray*} dC = \left(\frac{\partial C}{\partial ...

### Delta hedging and PF-value

Imagine buying a call option and shorting the delta. After some time $dt$, the stock price changes, and so does the delta and the call option value. We re-adjust our hedge using this new delta. ...

### Notion of risk-less portfolio in derivation of Black-Scholes

EDIT: As pointed out by Gordon in the comments, the portfolio I considered in my original post is neither self-financing nor (locally) risk-free. Though the central question is still open. Suppose ...
Suppose $dA_t = A_t[\mu dt+\sigma dW_t]$ (assets' value) under the physical measure, plus the other assumptions of the Merton model. Suppose further that debt and equity are tradeable assets that ...
