The Foreign Equity function calculates the theoretical price, sensitivities, the implied volatility, the implied strike, and the implied correlation value of a European Foreign Equity option struck in domestic currency using Reiner’s model. The valuation of the option is done in either domestic or foreign currency See Currency Translated Options for a further explanation.

Argument 
Description 
OptionType 
Alphanumeric value indicating the type of option: •Call = 1 or "c" (case insensitive) •Put = 2 or "p" (case insensitive) 
CurrencyType 
Alphanumeric value indicating the which currency type to value the option in: •Domestic = 1 or "d" (case insensitive) •Foreign = 2 or "f" (case insensitive) 
ModelStatistic 
Numeric value indicating the type of function required for the return value: •Theoretical = 1 •Delta = 2 •Gamma = 3 •Theta = 4 •Rho = 7 •Psi = 8 •Lambda = 9 •StrikeSensitivity = 11 •ImpliedStrike = 13 •Chi = 48 •ImpliedCorr = 50 •AssetImpliedVol = 51 (Implied Volatility of the underlying asset) •ExchangeImpliedVol = 52 (Implied Volatility of the exchange rate) •ExchangeSensitivity = 55 (Sensitivity to a change in the exchange rate) •AssetVega = 56 (Vega of the asset price's volatility) •ExchangeVega = 57 (Vega of the exchange rate's volatility) 
Asset 
The price of the underlying asset. Must be > 0. 
Strike 
The price at which the asset can be purchased if the option is a call or sold if the option is a put. Must be > 0. 
ExchangeRate 
The spot exchange rate. For options valued in domestic currency, it is specified in units of domestic currency per unit of foreign currency. For options valued in foreign currency, it is specified in units of foreign currency per unit of domestic currency. 
TimeExpire 
Time, expressed in either Days or Years (depending on the TimeFormat value), until the options expiration. Must be > 0. 
VolAsset 
Annualized volatility of the underlying security. Must be > 0. 
VolExch 
Annualized volatility of the exchange rate. Must be > 0. 
InterestRate 
Riskfree domestic interest rate expressed as a percentage. This rate is interpreted as a continuously compounded rate unless otherwise specified in the InterestType argument. Must be > 0. 
YieldRate 
Yield, expressed as a percentage (dividends or interest yield), of the underlying asset price. This rate is interpreted as a continuously compounded rate unless specified otherwise in the YieldType argument. 
Correlation 
The correlation between the underlying asset price and the exchange rate. Must be 1 < Correlation < 1. 
MarketPrice 
Optional. The selling price of the option in the marketplace. This input is required when any implied value is calculated. Price must be > 0. 
TimeFormat 
Optional. Alphanumeric value indicating the format of the time arguments (i.e. TimeExpire). If omitted, Days are used as the default. Specified as either: •Days = 0 or "D" (case insensitive) •Years = 1 or "Y" (case insensitive) 
InterestType 
Optional. Alphanumeric value indicating the type of InterestRate to use when evaluating the option. This value is converted to Continuously Compounded for the calculations. If omitted, a Continuously Compounded rate is used. 
YieldType 
Optional. Alphanumeric value indicating the type of YieldRate to use when evaluating the option. This value is converted to Continuously Compounded for the calculations. If omitted, a Continuously Compounded rate is used. 
Example
Calculate all of functions for a foreign equity call option whose asset price 68 days from expiration is $59, the exercise price is $60, the exchange rate is $1.25, the riskfree interest rate is 8% per annum, the yield rate is 6% per annum, the annual volatility of the asset is 30%, the annual volatility of the exchange is 25%, and the correlation between the asset price and the currency rate is 0.25. All of the rates are considered continuous. So,
