Put options are commonly used in the stock market to protect against the decline of the price of a stock below a specified price. On the other hand, finite difference approach is a well-known and well-resulted numerical scheme for financial differential equations. As such in this work, a new spatial discretization based on finite difference semi-discretization procedure with high order of accuracy is constructed for the problem of European and American put options. Several numerical experiments are also worked out.
