Constant volatility is unrealistic, of course, but what’s even worse is that the market is complete as a consequence and derivatives are redundant. Assuming stochastic volatility and jumps makes the market incomplete all right and, as a consequence, derivatives are no longer perfectly replicable by the underlying; however, in reality they should no longer trade and admit of market prices for, if they did, their price processes could be used to complete the market.

To go beyond the time limit: isn’t it to say that the inference now comes from the place itself, from the price of the derivative itself? And so, that there is no inference of the statistical coefficient anymore, because every inference will be destroyed by the next? ) Isn’t this the total liberation from statistics, hence the view of its end?

They are literally immeasurable. I call them im-possible, to emphasize the fact that they are external to the whole regime of possibility.

The future world that they bring about is radically incompatible with the present one.
