Title: Hedging Error as a Timing Risk and its Static Hedge
Abstract: I will present a new framework of semi-static hedge of barrier options.
First, after reviewing the context, we will show that its hedging error can be understood
as a ``timing risk'', and secondly we claim that it can be hedged by an integration of semi-static hedges of different maturities. Third, I will introduce a hierarchy of semi-static positions, $n$-th one of which hedges the error by the $(n-1)$-th and so on. In a fairly general situations, the hierarchy is exact in that the hedging error vanishes.
