CFA Practice Question

A European stock index call option has a strike price of $1,160 and a time to expiration of 0.25 years. Given a risk-free rate of 4 percent, if the underlying index is trading at $1,200 and has a multiplier of 1, then the lower bound for the option price is closest to ______.

A. $28.29
B. $40.00
C. $51.32
Correct Answer: C

The lower bound on a European call is either zero or the underlying asset's price minus the present value of the exercise price, whichever is greater.

$1200 - ($1160 / 1.040.25) = $51.32
