18 Let Qs be the measure such that EQs ST 1+r = S0 and Qs (YT |ST ) = P(YT |ST ). 72) Moreover, let CT = c(ST , YT ) be the claim to be priced, in spot units, with spot risk aversion coefficient γ s . 73) . Proof. 1, we first establish that the spot value functions, V s,0 and V s,CT , are given by V s,0 (x) = −e−γ 1 sx s (q s )q s (1 − q s )1−q s (p1 + p2 )q (p3 + p4 )1−q s and V s,CT (x) = −e−γ × (eγ sx 1 s c1 s c2 s (eγ 1+r p1 + eγ 1+r p2 )q (q s )q s (1 − q s )1−q s s c3 1+r p3 + e γ s c4 1+r s p4 )1−q , where qs = (1 + r) − ξ d .

Our notation can easily be made consistent with that of Merton [188]. If B > 0 and B = 1, then integration leads to U (x) = C 1 (A + Bx)1− B + D; B −1 C > 0, D ∈ R, x > −A/B, where C and D are constants of integration. This is called the extended power utility function; see Huang and Litzenberger [133]. If A = 0, this becomes the well-known narrow power utility function: U (x) = CB −1/B 1 Bx 1− B + D; B −1 C > 0, D ∈ R, x > 0. It is more usually written with R = 1/B and D = 0, C = B 1/B , giving U (x) = x 1−R 1−R R = 1.

D (p3 + p4 ) q ∗ (p3 + p4 ) Moreover, the relative entropy H (Q∗ |P) is given by H (Q∗ |P) = q ∗ log q∗ 1 − q∗ , + (1 − q ∗ ) log p3 + p4 p1 + p2 and, hence, ∂q ∗ ∂H (Q∗ |P) =− ∂S0 ∂S0 log (1 − q ∗ )(p1 + p2 ) . q ∗ (p3 + p4 ) The sensitivity of q ∗ to S0 can be easily calculated. Indeed, we get ∂q (γ u )−1 (γ d )−1 ∂q ∗ = . ∂S0 ∂S0 (EQ (δT ))2 Also, because the coefficient S0 (β u + β d ) can be written as S0 1 ∂q (γ u )−1 (γ d )−1 = , d +β ) ∂S0 EQ (δT ) (β u we get S0 ∂q ∗ 1 EQ (δT ). = d +β ) ∂S0 (β u The above formulas imply that α 0,∗ = − ∂H (Q∗ |P) EQ (δT ).
