PCR is calculated by dividing the number of open interest in a Put contract by the number of open interest in Call option at the same strike price and expiry date on any given day.

The Put Call Ratio simply takes the number of put options traded and divides it by the number of call options. The higher the number, the more negative the directional bias is for that asset. E.g. if a PCR shows 2.5, then this means that there has 2.5 times more interest in put options than calls.

A Low put-call ratio (PCR ratio) below 1 suggests that traders are buying more Call options than Put options. It signals that most market participants are betting on a likely bullish trend going forward.

A PCR at one (=1) suggests that investors are purchasing the same amount of put options as call options and signals a neutral trend going forward.

No PCR is considered ideal, but a PCR below 0.7 is typically viewed as a strong bullish sentiment while a PCR above 1 is typically viewed as a strong bearish sentiment.
