Comonotonic asset prices in arbitrage-free markets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For an arbitrage-free market with a single underlying asset, we investigate conditions under which the consecutive price levels are comonotonic. Furthermore, for an arbitrage-free market with n assets we investigate the consequences of assuming comonotonicity of the vector containing the price levels of each asset at a single future date T. Although being of a theoretical nature, the results of this paper give insight in the reachability of the comonotonic upper bounds for Asian options and for basket options that can be found in Simon et al. (2000), Dhaene et al. (2002) [1], Hobson et al. (2005) and Chen et al. (2008).
