Δ DELTA

The delta strategy allows a user to define a level of delta and Predy will create a position using the ETH perpetual with the specified delta.
The ETH perpetual is designed to give leveraged exposure to ETH, it is referenced to the Chainlink ETH price oracle. The Predy ETH perpetual is similar to perpetual ETH futures that can be traded on many centralized exchanges. The ETH perpetual contract has a delta of 1, meaning that if the index price of ETH goes up by $1, the contract price will also change by $1.

You should be long delta anytime you're bullish on the ETH price. The funding rate needs to be taken into consideration with the positioning.

You should be short delta anytime you're bearish on the ETH price. The funding rate needs to be taken into consideration with the positioning.
