Title: Bounds on European Option Prices under Stochastic Volatility
Abstract: In this paper we consider the range of prices consistent with no arbitrage for European options in a general stochastic volatility model. We give conditions under which infimum respectively the supremum of the possible option prices are equal to the intrinsic value of the option or to the current price of the stock and show that these conditions are satisfied in most of the stochastic volatility models from the financial literature.
