Three key technical indicators — relative strength index (RSI), put-call ratio (PCR), and stochastic oscillator — are indicating that markets are now in an oversold zone.


The volume of put options traded to the number of call options traded currently

The Put Call ratio (alternately "Put to Call", "Put / Call") is a ratio comparing the volume of put options to the volume of call options traded on the CBOE.

It is often used as an indicator of market confidence; when the ratio is high (above 1.00) the profusion of put options suggests investors expect the market to go down. Conversely, a low number (below 1.00) suggests investors expect the market to go up based on the volume of call options.
