Description
The stochastic-alpha-beta-rho (SABR) model has been widely adopted in options trading. In particular, the normal ($\beta=0$) SABR model is a popular model choice for interest rates because it allows negative asset values. The option price and delta under the SABR model are typically obtained via asymptotic implied volatility approximation, but these are often inaccurate and arbitrageable. Using a recently discovered price transition law, we propose a Gaussian quadrature integration scheme for price options under the normal SABR model. The compound Gaussian quadrature sum over only 49 points can calculate a very accurate price and delta that are arbitrage-free.
