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.
