Main Article Content

Javed Hussain


The aim of the paper is paper is twofold. Firstly, we will derive an explicit closed formula for pricing the compound call option contingent upon a currency call option. Secondly, we will develop a pricing formula for the compound call option contingent upon the power call option.
