Delta measures the degree an option changes based on a one dollar change in the underlying. Therefore, if a underlying moves up $1.00 and the option will increase in price by $.70 cents, then the delta is .70. Delta can be expressed in a positive (or increase in price) or a negative, which would decrease the price. Portfolio delta represents it’s movement in relation to the underlying stock or stocks.
