Availability of Normal distribution table

Postby singhal.anuj » Tue Mar 11, 2014 11:46 am

In order to calculate option value using Black Sholes, we need to calculate normal distribution value of D1 and D2. (CHAPTER 8 - Basic Principles of Option Pricing )
I am using TI-30XS calculator for practice. I could not find any option on this calculator to find the normal distribution value.
Similarly, we need to know normal distribution values to calculate the probability of attaining a return goal, Value at Risk in a portfolio and probability that one portfolio will outperform another portfolio. ( Chapter - 2 - Portfolio Mathematics).
Will be get normal distribution tables in the exam?
Will be get MS-Excel application in the exam?
Is there a way on TI-30XS calculator to determine normal distribution values( that I am not aware of)?

No you can't calculate normal distribution value through calculator. In the exam you are suppose to know the three values 90%,95% and 99%, If the question is out of these value they will provide you table.
