Abstract: We consider an optimal reselling problem for a European option. A modification of the Cox-Ingersoll-Ross process is used to model the implied volatility. We construct a two-dimensional binomial-trinomial exponential approximation instead of the discrete approximation proposed by Pupashenko and Kukush (2008) in Theory Stoch. Process. **14(30)**, no. 3-4, 114-128. We use the results concerning the convergence of reward functionals for exponential price processes with independent log-increments obtained by Lundgren et al.(2008) in J. Numer. Appl. Math. **1(96)**, 90-113. We proved that there is no arbitrage strategy in the proposed discrete model.
