This paper gives a simple construction of the pathwise Ito integral ∫ ϕ dω for an integrand ϕ and an integrator ω satisfying various topological and analytical conditions. The definition is purely pathwise in that neither ϕ nor ω are assumed to be paths of processes, and the Ito integral exists almost surely in a non-probabilistic finance-theoretic sense. For example, one of the results shows the existence of ∫ ϕ dω for a cadlag integrand ϕ and a cadlag integrator ω with jumps bounded in a predictable manner.
