# General question regarding delta heding

I was wondering if I have to take the strike prices of options into consideration when doing a gamma and delta hedging. As an example, let's suppose that I have 2 positions:

1. a long position call option with strike 55\$, delta $$\Delta_1=0,5$$ and Gamma $$\Gamma_1=0,03$$ 2. a short position put option with strike 56\$, delta $$\Delta_2=-0,7$$ and Gamma $$\Gamma_2=0,01$$.

The difference in strike prices shouldn't play a role when doing gamma and delta hedging right?

• That's right. The calculation of $\Delta$ and $\Gamma$ already took the option's strike (and maturity, etc. etc.) into account. – noob2 Jul 21 at 15:49
• Thanks a lot. I wasn't 100% sure but that cleared my doubts! – Alex Jul 21 at 17:58
