"Theta" in context

Theta is a financial term that describes a situation when an option's price changes based on a change in the underlying stock's price. Theta measures the theoretical rate of decline in an option's value as time passes and the option approaches expiration. If a stock price is expected to remain steady or decline, a long position in the option will lose value due to theta. The more the option is in-the-money, the higher the rate of theta decay. Therefore, when entering into an option contract, it is important to be aware of the theta decay rate and expected changes in the underlying stock price.
