Investopedia explains 'DvegaDtime'


When looking to express DvegaDtime for a single day, investors should divide by 36,500 (or 25,200 if calculating for trading days). This is different than charm or color, which are divided by 365 to obtain the daily value.

Unlike many of the other "Greeks", DvegaDtime does not have a Greek letter associated with it.
