Delta Neutrality

Categories

The Greeks

This just means that they have various positions on (some bullish and some bearish) but their overall portfolio is pretty delta neutral. It can be very difficult to trade directionally, so we often choose to keep our deltas neutral. This means that if there are big directional moves in the market, our portfolio will be at less risk than if we were fully directional and wrong. We rely on theta decay, and implied volatility overstatement as our main drivers of long term edge, not directional trading.
