Call/Put Options Ratio
A leading sentiment indicator is the callput ratio. It
is calculated by dividing the volume of call options by the volume of put
options.
A callput ratio of 1 indicates that a neutral view is currently
prevalent in the market. A callput ratio greater than 1 indicates a
bullish market sentiment. The higher the ratio, the greater the degree of
bullishness. A callput ratio less than 1 indicates a bearish sentiment.
While the callput 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, callput 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:
