More precisely, Itˆo’s integral may be seen as the cumulative gain process of a trading strategy where δt is the number of the shares of the underlying asset held at time t and the increment in the Riemann sum is the price variation over the period. The non-anticipating assumption corresponds to the financial requirement that the investment decisions are based only on the observation of the past prices. At any time t, the residual wealth of the trader is invested in cash, yielding a rate (called short rate) rt by time unit.
