Omega (warrants)

A measure of the price elasticity of a warrant.

The omega indicates the percentage change in the price of a warrant given a one-percent change in the price of the underlying instrument. Unlike leverage, which assumes that the absolute changes in price are the same for the warrant and the underlying instrument, the omega takes into account the delta and thus measures the actual leverage of the warrant.
