Abstract

The aim of this paper is to develop a hedging methodology for making a portfolio of options delta, vega and gamma neutral by taking positions in other available options, and simultaneously minimizing the net premium to be paid for the hedging. A quadratic programming solution for the problem is formulated, and then it is approximated to a linear programming solution. A prototype for the linear programming solution has been developed in MS Excel using VBA.
