The Volatility Fitting App allows for automated management of volatility curves across various products and instrument months. The job does this by creating Assigned Volatility curves that fit to mid-market, effectively handling outliers and missing market data on a timer to ensure that the fitted curve is fairly smooth and within market implied vols. The job can be configured to fit on a subset of expirations on one or more symbols with various options for fitting the wings.
