Theta (warrants)

Dynamic indicator that measures the change in the price of a warrant as the amount time remaining to expiration decreases.

The theta factor, which reflects the decline of the time value, is expressed as a negative value for long positions and as a positive value for short positions. The value of theta increases as the expiration date approaches.
