### Mean reversion parameter estimation in Hull White - Vasicek extension [closed]

I'm fitting the Hull White - Vasicek extension model (1994a) for one-factor short interest rate as shown in Brigo Mercurio book. Short rate dynamics: $$dr(t) = [\theta(t) + ar(t)]dt + \sigma dW(t)$$ ...

### Problem with pricing a call option using the Monte Carlo Vasicek model

I am trying to price a call option on a zero coupon under the Vasicek Model using Monte Carlo method: $$C_0 = B(0,\theta) \ \mathbb{E}^{\mathbb{Q}_T}[(B(\theta,T)-K)^{+}]$$ The problem is that the ...

### Vasicek Model: smile dynamics

I have come across the statement that the Vasicek model cannot be used to price skew / smile sensitive products: i.e. it cannot be calibrated to replicate a skew or smile. Why is that? My guess is ...

### Is there a closed form solution to the following system of SDEs?

Suppose we have the system \begin{align} dr_t=\alpha_r(x_t-r_t)dt+\sigma_rdW_t^r\\ dx_t=\alpha_x(\bar{x}-x_t)dt+\sigma_xdW_t^x\\ \end{align} As this system is affine, I believe there should be an easy ...

### How do I estimate the factor sensitivity in a Vasicek Single Factor Model?

I understand the formula of an asset return for an obligor i is given by the following: $$A_i = \sqrt{w_i}*Z + \sqrt{1-w_i}*\epsilon_i$$ My question is - How do I calculate $w_i$? I have the PD, LGD ... 126 views

### Why Vasicek model on a tree is a bad choice for pricing American option on credit prepayment?

I have an American option on a credit prepayment, i.e. the holder of the option can prepay the remaining credit if the interest rate falls below the initial strike. The pricing of this option was done ...

### Why can a two-factor interest rate model not be used to value a coupon bearing bond as the sum of options on ZCBs

I am currently reading some notes which state that For one-factor models, the value of a European option on a coupon bond can be calculated as the sum of European options on zero-coupon bonds (ZCBs). ...
