The Call/Put Ratio is calculated by dividing the daily or weekly volume of call options by the daily or weekly volume of put options.
Typically, large call volume appears at market tops and large put volume at market 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 Call/Put Ratio is often smoothed using a 4-week simple moving average.
