Theta
This measures the effect on an Option’s price of a one-day decrease in the time to expiration. The more the market and strike prices diverge, the less effect theta has on a Vanilla option’s price. Theta is also non-linear for vanilla options, meaning that its value decreases faster as the Option is closer to maturity. Positive Gamma is generally associated with negative theta and vice versa.
