Full Definition

Measures the rate of change in the delta of an option. The gamma is highest when the option is at the money. Normal practice sets the gamma to represent the deltas per one point change in the underlying value. An option with a gamma of 0.05, for example, will gain 0.05 deltas for each one point increase in the value of the underlying futures contract.
