NEW YORK (AVAFIN) -- Options traders were heavily trading call contracts during the last trading session establishing a
new 3-month call volume record. A total of 3,062 put and 8,180 calls were traded where call
contracts outnumbered puts 2.7:1, yielding a 0.37 ratio.
Put/Call ratio can be regarded as a predictor of investment sentiment, indicating what experienced
investors are doing in preparation for a move of an underlying equity. A high put/call ratio
suggests that the investor sentiment is bearish and that investors are expecting the underlying
stock price to decrease. On the other hand, a low put/call ratio implies that the investor
sentiment is bullish and that investors are expecting the underlying stock price to increase.
Thus, unusual volume provides reliable clues that the stock is expected to make a move.
