Enter the total volume of puts and the total volume of calls into the Put to Call Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Put to Call Ratio.

## Put to Call Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Put to Call Ratio.

PCR = #P / #C

• Where PCR is the Put to Call Ratio ( )
• #P is the total volume of puts
• #C is the total volume of calls

## How to Calculate Put to Call Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Put to Call Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total volume of puts.
• The total volume of puts is given as: 5,000.
2. Next, determine the total volume of calls.
• The total volume of calls is provided as: 10,000.
3. Finally, calculate the Put to Call Ratio using the equation above:

PCR = #P / #C

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

PCR = 5,000 / 10,000 = .50

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total volume of puts = 7,000

total volume of calls = 4,000

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

PCR = #P / #C = ?
