Abstract [en]

    The timing option embedded in a futures contract allows the shortposition to decide when to deliver the underlying asset during the lastmonth of the contract period. In this paper we derive, within a very gen-eral incomplete market framework, an explicit model independent formulafor the futures price process in the presence of a timing option. We alsoprovide a characterization of the optimal delivery strategy, and we analyzesome concrete examples.
