Summary The main results of this paper are the derivation of the distribution functions of occupation times under the constant elasticity of variance process. The distribution functions can then be used to price alpha-quantile options. We also derive the fixed-floating symmetry relation for alpha-quantile options when the underlying asset price process follows a geometric Brownian motion.
