    Hey. Could anyone tell me if I have a process $I_t=\int_0^t f_tdB_t,$ where $(f_t,t\ge 0)$ is bounded, $|f_t|\leq M$ almost surely for all $t \ge 0$, how can I show that
    $$\mathcal{P}\left[\sup_{0\leq t\leq T}|I_t|>\lambda\right]\leq \exp\left(-\frac{\lambda^2}{2M^2T}\right).$$

    First I tried by defining $Y_t^{\alpha}=\exp\left(\alpha I_t-\frac{1}{2}\int_{0}^t f^{2}(s)ds\right)$, where $\alpha\in \mathbb{R}$ to get an upper bound. But I need to know how to show that $Y_t^{\alpha}$ is a mgale. Thank

    To clarify, I think MemT is asking if this question could be reopened. As s/he has explained that s/he's revising for an exam, I have explained that this is not on-topic for MO and recommended


    Yes, I agree that this is not really suitable for mathoverflow, and is more likely to get an answer at math.stackexchange. Also, the inequality mentioned is a special case of the following question (and answer) already asked on math.SE, and the technique is to use time-change.
