Executive Summary

The mainstream model of option pricing is based on an exogenously given process of price movements. The implication of this assumption is that price movements are not affected by actions of market participants. However, if the authors assume that there are indeed impacts on the price movements it no longer possible to apply the standard pricing models. As a result they need an approach explaining interdependent actions. Game theory is in a position to offer proper solutions. This paper applies game theoretic concepts to determine option prices. Consequently, both the option price and the underlying?s expiration price are endogenously determined.
