11:45 jeffrey2360: Would be great to be able to grab live greeks in a study the same way we get price. HIstorical data is not that important, but having live ratio is very useful (delta/theta)
11:46 Mobius:
Code:
``````# Delta Calculation
# For Options with 1 dollar strikes
# Mobius
# V01.07.2019

input DayToExpiry = 2; #hint: Don't mess with this.
input Series_IV = 1;

def IV = SeriesVolatility(series = Series_IV);
def K = Floor(close);
def S = close;
def R = GetInterestRate();
def t = DayToExpiry / 365;
def d1 = (log(S / K) + ((R + (sqr(IV) / 2)) * t)) / (IV * sqrt(t));
script cnd

{

input data  = 1;

def a = AbsValue(data);

def b1 =  .31938153;

def b2 = -.356563782;

def b3 = 1.781477937;

def b4 = -1.821255978;

def b5 = 1.330274429;

def b6 =  .2316419;

def e = 1 / (1 + b6 * a);

def i = 1 - 1 / Sqrt(2 * Double.Pi) * Exp(-Power(a, 2) / 2) *

(b1 * e + b2 * e * e + b3 * Power(e, 3) + b4 * Power(e, 4) + b5 * Power(e, 5));

plot CND = if data < 0

then 1 - i

else i;

}

def Delta = cnd(d1);
AddLabel(1, "Delta Est = " + Delta, color.white);
# End Code Delta Estimate``````

11:47 Mobius: That is pretty bloody close
11:47 Mobius: usually within a penny
11:48 jeffrey2360: Oh. I got to study that code. Will it be possible to apply this to 4 options in a single study ?
11:50 Mobius: sure. You'll need to run 4 instances of the study, change the ones for puts from the above which is for calls and alter the other strikes.
11:52 Mobius: And it would help to have a degree in mathematics and coding but you can probably do it. Maybe

Posted today on thinkScript Lounge - gift from Mobius.

Code:
``````# Greeks Calculations (originally just Delta)
# For Options
# Mobius
# V02.07.2019
# K - Option strike price
# N - Standard normal cumulative distribution function
# r - Risk free interest rate
# IV - Volatility of the underlying
# S - Price of the underlying
# t - Time to option's expiry
# Delta = N(d1)
#           d1 = (ln(S/K) + (r + (sqr(IV)/2))t) / (? (sqrt(t)))
# Gamma  = (d2) / S(IV(sqrt(t)))
# d2 =  e -(sqr(d1) / 2) / sqrt(2*pi)
# Theta = ((S d2))IV) / 2 sqrt(t)) - (rK e(rt)N(d4))
#         where phi(d3) = (exp(-(sqr(x)/2))) / (2 * sqrt(t))

Thanks @mc01439 ! Mobius is handing out Thanksgiving Black Friday Deals (as he called it) early. Very nice.

Hi please share some info where can we use delta/theta . Is it any type of option entry indicators with the calculation?

How could I use this on options that are in \$5 increments like Amazon?

some people think dollar gamma values are more interesting, there is a thread here about it from last year
