Black-Scholes Option Pricing and Greeks Calculator for Excel

This Excel spreadsheet implements the Black-Scholes pricing model to value European Options (both Calls and Puts).  The spreadsheet allows for dividends and also gives you the Greeks

These are sample parameters and results

  • Delta is the derivative of option value with respect to the underlying asset price. It’s positive for Calls and negative for Puts.
  • Vega is the derivative of the option value with respect to the volatility
  • Theta is the derivative of the option value with respect to time
  • Rho is the derivative of the option value with respect to the interest rate

The assumptions used in deriving the model include

  • constant volatility (which is not valid in the long term),
  • efficient markets (hence no room for artbitrage),
  • constant interest rates,
  • returns are log-normal in their distribution,
  • the option can only be exercised on its expiration dates (i.e. European style),
  • no commision or transaction costs,
  • and perfect market liquidity.
