I am currently trying to understand the in's and out's of options and more specifically hedging. I came across a document that was talking about Delta Hedging which is just making sure the delta of your overall position will be 0. But how do you hedge Omega(Time)?

    $\begingroup$ The Omega Part of Delta-Omega Hedging was defined here. docs.google.com/… $\endgroup$ – ChromoX Sep 25 '11 at 18:48

    $\begingroup$ Is Delta-Omega Hedging another way of saying Delta Neutral, while comparing multiple different delta neutral strategies based upon their Omega ratio? $\endgroup$ – ChromoX Sep 25 '11 at 18:49

    $\begingroup$ Hi ChromoX, welcome to quant.SE. Please consider registering to help the site track the progress of your question. Omega is a performance measure, intended as a more sophisticated replacement for the Sharpe ratio. I have never heard of "delta-omega hedging" or hedging "omega(time)". Do you have sources for these terms? $\endgroup$ – Tal Fishman Sep 25 '11 at 19:37
