Abstract
Heston stochastic volatility model is the most popular stochastic volatility model used in pricing options despite its inefficiencies with Short term maturities. In this paper, we improved the Heston Model by incorporating the log-normal jump diffusions in the model. The derivation of the closed form solution of the Heston model and the full derivation of the Heston Model with jump are presented. We applied the models to National Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System(NASDAQ April 2021) stock data and back-tested them against the Black Scholes model since it predicts better option prices in short term maturities as compared to the Heston Model. Using Mean Squared Error, Heston Model with jump performs better than the Black scholes Model by 47.3% and Heston model by 58.08% error reduction.
