Hedging Gamma, Vega, Theta & Rho
Gamma • Delta (D) measures the changein portfolio valueas the underlier’s price S changes (~speed). • Gamma (G) measures the rate of change in portfolio value as S changes (~acceleration).
Meaning of Gamma • If Gamma is small (abs.), small changes in S will not affect much Delta (and your portfolio value) ,sothere is less need to take immediate rebalancing action. • If Gamma is large, small changes in S will affect Delta (and your portfolio value) significantly, sothere is a stronger need to take immediate rebalancing action.
Using Gamma • During small periods of time t2-t1 D Portfolio = ½ *G * (S2-S1)2 Example: If you do not rebalance and the underlier price dropsfrom $52 to $50, the change of value in a Delta-Neutral Portfolio is approximately = ½ *G * (S2-S1)2 = 0.5 * (-10,000) * (52-50)2 = -$20,000 ~
How to Calculate Gamma • Gamma = N’(d1) SsÖ t • N’(d1) = e –(d1)2/2 Ö (2 p) • d1 as in Black Scholes Gamma Stock price S Strike
Gamma-Neutral Portfolio • More stable than a delta neutral-only. • Cannot use the stock to reach Gamma neutrality because the stock has Gamma = 0 1) Gportfolio <> 0 2) Gportfolio+ Gxqtyx = 0 3) qtyx= -Gportfolio / Gx • Warning: Acquiringqtyx will disturb Delta neutrality. You will need to rebalance.
Delta Gamma Delta It’s a strategy, not a sorority. • Find out what to acquire to achieve Delta neutrality. • Find out what to acquire to achieve Gamma neutrality. • Find out what to acquire to re-achieve Delta neutrality. Stock is ideal because it will not affect Gamma.
More Dark Horses • Simultaneous Delta Gamma • Conditional Gamma • Extreme transaction costs minimization Come and see me – not on the last day!
Theta, Vega, and Rho Conceptually similar to Delta • Theta = change in portfolio value when timechanges • Vega = change in portfolio value when the volatilitychanges • Rho = change in portfolio value whenthe rate of interestchanges
