79662. Our tree is actually a tree of the short-term interest rate. The average direction in which the short-term interest rate moves depends on the level of the rate. When the rate is very high, that direction is downward; when the rate is very low, it is upward. – John Hull

79663. The HoLee model was the first term structure model. I remember reading their paper soon after it was published and as it was fairly different from many of the other papers that I had read, I had to read it quite a few times. I realized that it was a really important paper. – John Hull

79664. The problem with interest rates are that you are not modeling a single number, you are modeling a whole term structure, so it is a sort of different type of problem. – John Hull

79665. The real challenge was to model all the interest rates simultaneously, so you could value something that depended not only on the three-month interest rate, but on other interest rates as well. – John Hull

79676. Briefly speaking, our conclusion is that stochastic volatility does not make a huge difference as far as the pricing is concerned if you get the average volatility right. It makes a big difference as far as hedging is concerned. – John Hull

79677. Alan White and I spent the next two or three years working together on this. We developed what is known a stochastic volatility model. This is a model where the volatility as well as the underlying asset price moves around in an unpredictable way. – John Hull

79678. Our research led on to other things, such as the fact that exchange rates are not lognormally distributed. – John Hull
