There are consequences to not setting the price of options at or near fair market in-the-money with the cash flow discounted at an appropriate interest rate. Not all options can be used to this purpose.

### The higher the interest rate, the more attractive the first option becomes. Thus, when interest rates rise the value of put options drops. 6. Dividends. Options do not

Finally, we will compare the performance of several models in extracting the implied distribution. II. Framework for Option Prices. To price interest rate options We introduce a new analytical approach to price American options. Key words: American options, stochastic volatility, stochastic interest rates, asymptotic : Exercise price. $r$ : Risk free interest rate. $\sigma$ : Standard deviation of the underlying asset, eg P = price of a put option. S = price of the underlying asset. X = strike price of the option r = rate of interest t = time to expiration s = volatility of the underlying
