Calculates the price of a shout option using Monte Carlo simulations to
determine expected payout. Assumes that the option follows a General
Brownian Motion (GBM) process, ds = mu * S * dt + sqrt(vol) * S * dW where dW ~ N(0,1).
Note that the value of mu (the expected price increase) is assumped to be
o$r, the risk free rate of return.
The number of simulation paths to use in calculating the price; must be >= 10
The option object
o with the price in the field
PxMC based on the MC simulations.
