Abstract

The study empirically tests and compares the pricing performance of two alternative futures pricing models ; the standard Cost of Carry Model and Hemler & Longstaff Model (1991) for three futures indices of National Stock Exchange (NSE), India CNX Nifty futures, Bank Nifty futures and CNX IT futures. It is found that, Hemler & Longstaff Model in a continuous economy with stochastic interest rate and Market volatility provides better pricing performance than standard Cost of Carry Model for CNX Nifty futures and Bank Nifty Futures market. The regression results of CNX Nifty and Bank nifty futures are consistent with the empirical implications of the Hemler & Longstaffs equilibrium model and supports Market Volatility related to stock index futures prices. The regression results of CNX IT Futures support the Cost of Carry model and provides better pricing performance than Hemler & Longstaff Model. On the basis of pricing performance, in terms of Mean Absolute Pricing Error( MAPE) , the preferred contract is CNX Nifty futures contract, followed by Bank Nifty futures and CNX IT futures contract for both the pricing models.
