Hi everyone, first post here

I'd like to know how to get the implied level of correlation from the IDB's Call vs Call or Put vs Put on a basket of two index (exemple : SPX & SX5E, quoted in €), at a given strike and maturity.

I know I can see the CvC as a call on SPX+SX5E basket, and the inverse position on a vanilla call on SX5E and on a quanto call on SPX quoted in €, hence if i get the price of the two last, get the price of the sole call on basket, and get the correlation from

But that's make a lot of data to collect. Do you know is there's a more direct formula who gives directly ρ from the CvC or the PvP price ?

Thanks in advance

modesty prevents me from quoting the definitive paper concerning options on spreads but you might want to google "commodity covariance contracting"
