Detailed Description

Binary supershare and superfund payoffs.

Binary superfund payoff

Superfund sometimes also called 'supershare', which can lead to ambiguity; within QuantLib the terms supershare and superfund are used consistently according to the definitions in Bloomberg OVX function's help pages.

This payoff is equivalent to being (1/lowerstrike) a) long (short) an AssetOrNothing Call (Put) at the lower strike and b) short (long) an AssetOrNothing Call (Put) at the higher strike
