Now, for n = N − 1 we have YN −1 = fN −1 (1+r)N −1 fN E ∗ (1+r) N FN −1 fN −1 ∗ if (1+r) N −1 ≥ E otherwise fN (1+r)N FN −1 which is equivalent to the formula YN −1 = max fN −1 , E ∗ YN FN −1 (1 + r)N −1 . Putting ∗ τN −1 = fN −1 ∗ N − 1 if (1+r) N −1 ≥ E N otherwise fN (1+r)N FN −1 we obtain that YτN∗ −1 is equal either to fN −1 (1 + r)N −1 or E∗ fN FN −1 .

Hence, IA = E IA FnS and therefore Fn = FnS . Next consider the following conditional distributions P ∗ {ω : ρn ∈ dx} Fn−1 , where ρn = ∆Sn , Sn−1 n = 1, . . , N . It turns out that these distributions have the following structure: there are non-positive predictable sequence (an )n≤N and non-negative predictable sequence (bn )n≤N such that P ∗ {ω : ρn = an } Fn−1 + P ∗ {ω : ρn = bn } Fn−1 = 1 , n≤N.
