Abstract

Conventional techniques for evaluating the implied volatility from option prices involve iterative methods. The analytical algorithm presented in this article provides a simple, fairly accurate, and intuitive way of determining implied volatility. The discussion of this method is with reference to the Garman-Kohlhagen model for currency options, but the analysis is applicable to all options that can be priced using the Black-Scholes model. An improvement on a closed-form solution for implied volatility that is computationally more efficient is also presented.
