What is Delta Hedging?

Delta hedging is a trading technique that lowers the directional risk associated with the price fluctuations of an underlying asset. Though, the hedge is achieved Ultimately by the use of options, the aim is to achieve a delta-neutral position, offsetting the portfolio risk or option.

Working of Delta Hedging.

Generally, when an investor buys or sells options and covers the risk by purchasing or selling an equivalent amount of stock or ETFs, it accounts for the most common delta hedging strategy. Trading volatility by delta neutral trading would involve other strategies as well. 

Considering that delta hedging is intended to reduce the volatility of the price of the option compared to the movement of the price of the underlying asset, rebalancing is continuously needed to ensure that the risk is hedged. A complex technique used by institutional investors or major investment firms is referred to be Delta hedging.

Delta Hedging strategies

1)Delta neutral hedging strategy

Delta Neutral refers to a strategy where the sum total of Delta for your position is zero

Any positive or negative change in the underlying prices does not impact such a strategy.

Options alone or any combination of futures and options can be produced by Delta neutral strategies.

For example- A call option with Delta=0.5 would change by 0.5 units for every 1 unit change in price of underlying. The delta value is positive for the call options, while the delta value is negative for the put options. Delta Neutral refers to a strategy where the sum total of your delta positions is zero.

Such strategy would not be affected by any positive or negative movement in the underlying prices.

Delta Neutral strategies can be shaped by options alone or by any mixture of Futures and Options.

When to apply such strategy ?

Only on expiry day after 2:30pm or election result time or budget or news time.

2)Long Straddle

A long straddle is built by purchasing the same quantity of ATM Call and Put Options.

The Delta of call options Is nullified by the negative delta put option, thus making this strategy delta neutral.

0.50-0.50=0

Choosing Call and Put option on the same strike price.

You may purchase straddles or sell them. With the same strike price and expiry date, you buy both a call and a put option for the same underlying stock in a long straddle. The more volatile the stock or index (the bigger the predicted price swing), the greater the chance of a strong change being made by the stock.
