In this second part of the Derivative Analytics tutorial we build upon the ease with which the Eikon Data API allows you to work with Options Chains by showing how to calibrate an options pricing model. We will show that this model is capable of approximating prices observed in the real world. We combine the Merton (1976) characteristic function with the Lewis (2001) integration function and finally evaluate the integral via numerical quadrature. To conclude, we compare the model-based prices to those observed in the markets and draw some conclusions.
