hi Doji,

Thanks for the great work. If you post how to read PCR chart and benefit, would be helpful


Doji (Blog Author) on July 17, 2009 at 8:06 PM said...

PCR is one of the market sentiment indicators. In general terms raising PCR signifies the market sentiment is bearish and vice versa. Coupled with other indicators, this can be a good early warning signals. has some basic information, please research more on Internet.


Devendra Thuthgar on July 20, 2009 at 11:28 AM said...

this PCR is different from what is shown on CNBC TV-18

can u tell me this PCR is only for July series or it is for over all Nifty series

Doji (Blog Author) on July 20, 2009 at 6:57 PM said...

I am calculating this data from current month's data only, grabbing the data from nse website. How much was the difference?


VIJAY on July 31, 2009 at 1:37 PM said...

Hey Doji gr8 to get in touch with u
can u tell me what is the difference between volume pcr and oi pcr and what differences in interpretation do we get???

Vijay on July 31, 2009 at 1:53 PM said...


i want to learn technical analysis. Can u suggest me any course or a few books pls? Have u done any courses? which books have u read on stock investing till now fundamental and technical?


viju on July 31, 2009 at 6:18 PM said...

Hi doji, Good evening.
I want some guidance from u. How do u trade in such market.Becoz market is over reacting.It means market want to fall, then falls in the morning itself with gap down and come up & if market want to rise it open with gap up and fall down from high and once again adjust to the near high of the day.In positional trade also we normally get trapped,when we go long and next day it falls with somehow gap down and our stop loss get triggered which we set in mind and again it comes to our buying cost & vice versa,sometime when we dont use stop loss then we occur huge loss.Plz focus on how to trade positional like 2-3 days and how to handle in INTRADAY while GAP UP OR GAP DOWN.
I hope you will focus on it, to solve the problem and do the profitable trades.

Doji (Blog Author) on August 1, 2009 at 8:58 AM said...

I would suggest these three books, to understand the basic concepts.

1. Pring, Martin J. - Technical Analysis for Short-Term Traders ----------For understanding basic pivots

2. John J. Murphy - Technical Analysis Of The Financial Markets ----------- For patterns

3. Candlestick Charting Explained - Greg Morris -------------- For candlestick analysis

OI PCR is more significant then volumes PCR, however both indicate the same.

Thanks Doji

CMP- 88
Dividend Yield (%)- 3.47%

what r ur comments regarding this stock?

Doji (Blog Author) on August 3, 2009 at 1:10 AM said...

Looks like you have been holding for more than 1 year. If you are willing to hold for longer time, then may be its good to hold as the current long term trend is up. On medium term, 68 is the crucial support and you may keep this as SL. intermediate minor supports are at 85 - 82 -80 levels

90-93 levels are immediate resistances. Once the resistance is take out, we may see good up moves.


Vijay on August 3, 2009 at 9:57 AM said...

pager on August 4, 2009 at 3:46 PM said...

hi Doji, can u tell me near nifty target,
it may go upward or downward?

santosh on August 4, 2009 at 7:31 PM said...

In Intraday which time frame chart & technical tools like MACD,RSI,Stochastic is more popular & useful to trading.

Doji (Blog Author) on August 4, 2009 at 11:27 PM said...

Hi Pager,
Markets are dynamic and its not probable to estimate targets. Instead a daily analysis is what keeps up in peace with market dynamics. I am writing may daily analysis on Nifty, you can find targets and patterns some times. Hope that helps.

Hi Santosh,
parameters to the indicators are based on the system one is following. They have no meaning when not defined with in a system and looked in isolation. There is no direct answer to your question. Timeframe and look-backs come as a part of your system.


Sujit on August 25, 2009 at 2:41 PM said...

Is the chart being updated even now?

Doji (Blog Author) on August 25, 2009 at 2:44 PM said...

Gudday Doji

Pradeep on September 15, 2009 at 12:34 PM said...

PCR o/i @ 2.03!!!!! i've never seen such a thing

Doji (Blog Author) on September 15, 2009 at 2:14 PM said...

2 is high, but not that uncommon I think.. I could be wrong though.

govind on September 15, 2009 at 2:50 PM said...

the pcr reported here do not match with either Economic Times or PCR obtained from any brokage house

Doji (Blog Author) on September 15, 2009 at 3:15 PM said...

I am calculating PCR from data provided by NSE website option chain at

(Sum of PUT OI) / (Sum of CALL OI)

If you think this is wrong, let me know.


renu on September 16, 2009 at 9:34 AM said...

hi doji,

i also calculate PCR data from nse site as you do and mine comes out to be same as yours.

govind on September 16, 2009 at 11:44 AM said...

Dear sir

There is no column in that data series which represents call OI & put OI , yeh there is column OI_NO_CON which represents OI in number of contracts , then what is methodolgy by which u calculate this PCR OI

govind on September 16, 2009 at 11:46 AM said...

& accordingly if i calculate with dividing oi_no_ co of put option / call option as on closing of 15092009 it comes to 1.593952643

Doji (Blog Author) on September 16, 2009 at 3:50 PM said...

Hi Renu, thanks for your comment.

OI_NO_CON is different, for PCR we look at options OI.
yesterday's closing PCR in my graph is same as you mentioned. It wont be available after tomorrow morning as I am displaying last 24 hrs PCR, check it now.

govind on September 16, 2009 at 5:17 PM said...

then let me know how you calculate the PCR & what is volume pcr . i have downloaded the op150909.dbf , but there is no colume as you mentioned in that of open intrest.

govind on September 25, 2009 at 10:51 AM said...

Dear Doji

waiting for your reply

govind on October 1, 2009 at 4:02 PM said...

Dear doji

still waiting for reply.

Doji (Blog Author) on October 1, 2009 at 6:14 PM said...


You are looking at the wrong file/page. Just open below URL:

You see Open Interest and Volume under Puts and calls. ratio of the sum of OI and Volume is the pcr that I graph here.


govind on October 2, 2009 at 1:49 PM said...

Dear doji
the link u send is just for puts & not calls. further my question is unanswered that what is volume pcr

Doji (Blog Author) on October 2, 2009 at 2:33 PM said...

Dear Govind,

Just spend some time and read what I said in my last comment. If you dont understand, please leave it, I cant write it any more clearer.


Zeitgeist on October 12, 2009 at 10:28 AM said...

hello doji,
gr8 work. i had one question: The value that we see on top is different from one shown in graph on y axis. For example, right now the value on top reads 1.14 and green line is pointing b/w 1.32 & 1.39. Why is this difference coming?

Zeitgeist on October 12, 2009 at 10:30 AM said...

sorry for the question..above...i was trying to look vol. on OI axis

Jignesh on December 8, 2009 at 8:18 PM said...

can i get prevous days chart

mynac on December 10, 2009 at 10:49 PM said...

Just got this link from Shikhartimby. Many, many thanks to both. You have given a new dimension for me to study. Thanks again.

Lakshmi Ramachandran on December 11, 2009 at 4:07 PM said...

can u please provide the OI put call ratio from 1st december?. I will really be thankful

Market Hypothesis on December 26, 2009 at 2:45 PM said...

I am watching your PCR OI and PCR Vol for last 6 months. it is an excellent effort you have made. If you go through the combined movement of PCROI and PCR Vol then it helps me to understand the movement of market atleast 5 to 10 minutes beforehand. I can be clearly understood that wehether market will surge or fall or move side ways. Somes traders falls into bulls or bears trap. I found your chart has saved me to fall into bears or bulls trap.

Thank you,

tamal on February 4, 2010 at 7:02 PM said...

Hi Doji,

Your chart is beautiful for day traders. Do you have OI & Volume PCR data (EOD basis)? I'll be grateful if you can share it with me. I need data upto Jan 2010.


timepass001 on February 11, 2010 at 9:01 PM said...

Many thanks for such a useful chart - I keep looking at the chart almost throughout the day! Since I am not capable of preparing such charts, I had couple of suggestions:
1. The chart may be updated from 9am onwards (I think the updation starts at 9.55am)
2. A second chart may be created for subsequent month as well.

Actually, I could not get the change in OI at option chain; it only reports current OI. If you have any links, please share.

Thanks in advance.
