On the Pricing of Forward Starting Options under Stochastic Volatility

  • We consider the problem of pricing European forward starting options in the presence of stochastic ­volatility. By performing a change of measure using the asset price at the time of strike determination as a numeraire, we derive a closed-form solution based on Heston’s model of stochastic volatility.
