We have recently applied several different approaches [5] towards understanding the American style

derivative random boundary and inequality problems and towards possible solutions.

In this letter we present a fourth discussion and result(s). We specifically focus on the early exercise

(risk) premium, this a monetary measure of the early exercise source of secondary non-market

uncertainty, and utilize this idea of monetary valuation of non-market early exercise uncertainty

(risk) to overcome the inequality portfolio and inequality PDE problem. We do this by relating the

equality portfolio of the European style derivative to the American style directly via the A-E=p relation

between American and European derivatives. We furthermore under an assumption of linear variation of

early exercise premium with respect to American option derive an American Black-Scholes like PDE

model and obtain a closed form solution for the same which parallels the traditional Black-Scholes formula.
