In a market with transaction costs, the price of a derivative can be expressed in terms of (preconsistent) price systems (after Kusuoka (1995)). In this paper, we consider a market with binomial model for stock price and discuss how to generate the price systems. From this, the price formula of a derivative can be reformulated as a stochastic control problem. Then the dynamic programming approach can be used to calculate the price. We also discuss optimization of expected utility using price systems.
