Delta hedge

• Is a risk management operation which uses derivative instruments against actual underlying securities or instruments. The composite option characteristic of the combined trade indicates the market exposure experienced by the trading or investing entity at that moment in time. When the market price or interest rate exposure is essentially minimized to zero, then the hedge is considered Delta Neutral.

• A dynamic hedging strategy using options with continuous adjustment of the number of options used, as a function of the delta of the option.
