Call/Put Options Ratio


A leading sentiment indicator is the call-put ratio. It is calculated by dividing the volume of call options by the volume of put options.

A call-put ratio of 1 indicates that a neutral view is currently prevalent in the market. A call-put ratio greater than 1 indicates a bullish market sentiment. The higher the ratio, the greater the degree of bullishness. A call-put ratio less than 1 indicates a bearish sentiment.

While the call-put ratio is a good indicator for the current investor sentiment, a look at how it trends over time is even more reliable. Even though call�put ratios may stay at levels greater than 1 for a (considerable) period of time, this may not really indicate bullishness if the indicator is falling over that time. Conversely, call-put ratios at levels below 1 need not necessarily indicate bearishness, as long as the ratio is rising. In other words, call/put ratios are a market sentiment indicator, not a trend confirmation indicator.

The number of the custom indicators based on call/put ratio are used to track market sentiment:
