Unusual volume provides reliable clues that the stock is expected to make a move. Investors
can use the put/call ratio statistics to measure trader sentiment. A high put/call ratio
suggests that the overall investment sentiment is bearish and that investors expect the
underlying stock to decrease in value. Conversely, a low put/call ratio implies that
investor sentiment is bullish based on the large amount of call options.
