Above X 2 , he pays away $1 under the call option for each $1 rise in the price. If the option positions are combined with his position in the underlying commodity (second graph), the result is his net exposure to the commodity (third graph). Between X 1 and X 2 he is exposed to movements in the price; outside these limits he is completely hedged. A particularly popular variety is the zero-cost collar where the strike prices are arranged so that the receipt from the call exactly equals the cost of the put.

This type of process is known as a Wiener process. 4 ITO’S LEMMA In the last section it was seen that an infinitesimal stock price movement δSt in an infinitesimal time interval δt could be described by the Wiener process δSt = St (µ − q)δt + St σ δWt . A more generalized Wiener process (also known as an Ito process) can be written δSt = a St t δt + b St t δWt where a St t and b St t are now functions of both St and t. e. adequately differentiable with respect to St and t). Taylor’s theorem states that δ ft = 1 ∂ ft ∂ ft δt + δSt + ∂ St ∂t 2 ∂ 2 ft 2 ∂ 2 ft ∂ 2 ft 2 δS δS + δt + δt + · · · t t ∂ St ∂t ∂t 2 ∂ St2 where the subscript notation has been lightened a little for the sake of legibility.
