Dear All,

Please guide how to calculate the value of N(d1) in following example -

 Number of S.D. from Mean, (z) Area of the left or right (one tail) 0.25 0.4013 0.3 0.3821 0.55 0.2912 0.6 0.2578

Price of stock now = Rs.80
Exercise price = Rs.75
Standard deviation of continuously compounded annual
return = 0.40
Maturity period = 6 months
Annual interest rate = 12%

d1 = 0.5187
How to calculate value of N(d1) ?

Associate

To Dhanshree ,

i would like to give few info. on this question before  further solving :-

1 . This question is already asked in CWA- JUNE 2007 for 8 marks.

2.  ur info in above question is wrong realted to Z Area of  0.6 . The correct proability i.e 0.6 = 0.2743

3.  ur d1 value is also wrong . The correct value of d1 after solving is d1 = 0.58168.

calculation of  N(d1)  = N(.58168) = ?

given table value for (Z = 0.55) = .2912

(Z = 0.60) = .2743

N(0.55) = 1- 0.2912 = .7088 (Refer explanation no. 1)

N(0.60) = 1- 0.2743 = .7257 (Refer explanation no. 1)

Explanation No. 1

as we know that total probability of table is 1 & in "one tail table" if z = +ve then it shows right side area probability of calculated  Z (use right tail table).

now use interpolation technique in figures given below :-

.55       = 0.7088

.58168 = ?

.60        = .07257

from calculation using interpolation technique ,

we got value of N(d1) i.e. N(.58168) = 0.7195.

so , Dhanshree ur query has been solved out .. hope that further part of question will be done by your self ..

Thanks

Ist Method

Solving by intrapolation method for above problem: As shown by Mr Lapadi

.55 = 0.7088

0.60 = 0.7257

0.5817= ?

By Intrapolation:

[(0.5817-0.5500) / (0.60 - 0.55)] X [0.7257 - 0.7088]

= [0.0317/0.05] X 0.0169

= 0.0107146

Hence N(.5817) = 0.7088 + 0.0107146 = 0.7195. This is the same as Mr  Laphadi has shown

IInd Method : Or you can use the table

d1 = 0.5817. See the table for 0.5 under 8 and that is equal to  0.7190.

Then 0.17 x (0.7224-0.7190) = 0.000578    ( Note: 0.7224 is the value in table after 0.7190)

Then Add 0.7190 + 0.000578 and you get 0.7195.
