The put/call ratio is a sentiment indicator that is measured by dividing the put options volume by the call options volume.

Put/call ratios that measure the general market sentiment such as the one developed by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) are widely available. It is not the case with the put/call volume ratio of individual stocks.

The following steps will show you how to get this data and create a chart that displays the put/call ratio of your favorite stocks.

- Click on "OK".
