Volatility smile
A graph of the Implied volatility of an Option versus its strike (for a given tenor) typically describes a smile-shaped curve – hence the term ‘Volatility smile’. This can be attributed to the belief that the Underlying Distribution is leptokurtic, since this tends to increase the value of Out-of-the-money options.
