Option Pricing with Markov Switching in Uncertainty Markets
Abstract: In this paper, we present a stock model with Markov switching in the uncertainty markets, where the parameters of drift and volatility change according to the states of a Markov process. To price the option, we firstly establish a risk-neutral probability based on the uncertain measure given by Liu. Then a closed form of the European option pricing formula is obtained by applying the Laplace transforms and the inverse Laplace transforms.
