Delta




The amount by which the price of an option changes for every dollar move in the underlying instrument.

Delta measures the sensitivity of the option’s value to a change in
the price of the underlying.


Additional Comments:

Delta is related to the distance from the current market price either in the money or out of the money. The farther in the money an option becomes, the stronger the delta.
