Call/Put Ratio

 

This indicator is calculated by dividing the daily or weekly volume of call options by the daily or weekly volume of put options. Big call volume appears at market tops and big put volume at bottoms. Only CBOE equity options or all CBOE options should be used for this indicator. Call/put ratios of the indices like OEX and SPX are distorted and clouded by arbitrage and hedging and do therefore not always reflect true investor sentiment. The chart below shows you the weekly call/put ratio on a 4-week moving average to smooth out the swings.
