Basket_Option

Basket Option is a Tradable that represents a Multi Asset Option that only differs from a Vanilla Option in that the underlying is a weighted portfolio of assets rather than a single asset.
It is considered an exotic option due to the complex dependence of the portfolio price stochastic evolution upon the volatilities of - and pairwise correlations between - the individual constituents.
