From meme stock manias to the Nasdaq “whale,” while it’s evident options order flow influences underlying stock behavior, it’s less apparent which hedging indicators or greek exposures have predictive power for underlying stock returns. OptionMetrics Head Quant Garrett DeSimone, will speak at Europe EQD 2022 Barcelona on May 16-17 and Global EQD 2022 Las Vegas, May 25-26, on Demand for Option Order Delta. The measure of delta imbalance, referred to as DOOD, offers insights into informed trading and gamma hedging, as well as returns in underlying stock portfolio performance. This chart shows the cumulative returns of $1 invested in the SPX, high DOOD, low DOOD, and long/short (L/S) portfolio strategies. Both the high DOOD and L/S portfolio beat out SPX, posting a growth in wealth to $4.20 and $2.55, respectively. From a risk adjusted perspective, the long/short portfolio also displays a superior Sharpe of 1.08 versus 0.81 against the S&P 500 benchmark and carries a significant 3-Factor alpha of 0.0026 (14% annualized).
