investor behavior. A high put/call ratio suggests that the investor sentiment is bearish and
that investors expect the underlying stock to decrease in value. In contrast, a low put/call
ratio suggests that the investor sentiment is bullish and that the underlying stock is expected
to increase in value. Unusual volume provides reliable clues that the stock is expected to
make a move.
