# Subscribe to first-order Greeks on Deribit 31DEC21 100k call
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21-100000-C.greeks.1']
​
# Subscribe to second-order Greeks on Deribit 31DEC21 100k call
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21-100000-C.greeks.2']
​
# Pattern-subscribe to second-order Greeks on all Deribit options exiring 31DEC21
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21*.greeks.2']
​
# Pattern-subscribe to all Greeks (all 3 orders) on all Deribit puts
channel = ['deribit.BTC-*-P.greeks.*']

First Order

Greek

Field Name

Description

Delta

delta

Sensitivity of option price to move in underlying (dv/ds)

Vega

vega

Sensitivity of option price to move in volatility (dv/dĪƒ)

Theta

theta

Sensitivity of option price to time, time decay, (dv/d𝜏)

Rho

rho

Sensitivity to risk-free rate (dv/drho)

We calculate Rho based on 8h perpetual funding rate where available; this may differ from many exchanges which use a rate of 0%. The logic behind the use of the funding rate is the interpretation of this rate as an implied interest rate received from buying spot, trasferring to exchange, and shorting a perpetual. Other implementations can be made available on request.

You can get the components of the Black-Scholes calculation (i.e. d1, d2) through separate calls if these are used in other calculations, these are available for the same scenarios as the B-S pricing above:

d1

d2

d2

Some example subscriptions are given below:

# Subscribe to d1 on Deribit 31DEC21 100k call (1 minute RV)
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21-100000-C.d1.rv.1']
​
# Subscribe to d2 on Deribit 31DEC21 100k put (1 day RV)
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21-100000-C.d2.rv.1d']

Implied Volatility (IV)

Coming Soon

Get the IV for a given option or use a pattern subscription to get IVs for all options at a given expiry, or of a given currency. This uses a combination of Newton-Raphson and binomial search to quickly and robustly find the implied volatility.

Some example subscriptions are shown below:

# Subscribe to IV changes on the BTCUSD DEC31 100k call on Deribit
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21-100000-C.d1.iv']
​
# Subscribe to the IV changes of all 31DEC21 expiring options on Deribit
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21-*.iv']

Skewness

Coming Soon

Get the IV skew for a given expiry or use a pattern subscription to get the IV skews for all expiries on an exchange, or across exchanges.

Some example subscriptions are shown below:

# Subscribe to skew changes on the BTCUSD DEC31 option expiry
channel = ['deribit.BTC-31DEC21.skew']
​
# Subscribe to skew changes for all expiries on deribit
channel = ['deribit.*.skew']
​
# Subscribe to skew changes for all ETH expiries on deribit
channel = ['deribit.ETH-*.skew']
