Introduction to Open Interest

Open Interest represents the number of outstanding contracts for Future and Option contracts. For Options, every strike price of Option contract has an individual Open Interest value. It can also be defined as the total number of Future or Option contracts that has not been squared off. Open Interest tends to zero value at the expiry day of derivatives market as every one squares off their open positions.

There is a very tight co-relation between Open Interest, Price and Volume. It helps to interpret the trend of Market very effectively. An increase in open interest along with an increase in price is said to confirm an upward trend. Similarly, an increase in open interest along with a decrease in price confirms a downward trend. An increase or decrease in prices while open interest remains flat or declining may indicate a possible trend reversal. Te relationship between Open Interest, Price and Volume can be summarized in the following table:

Price Volume Open Interest Market Trend
Rising Up Up Strong
Rising Down Down Weak
Declining Up Up Weak
Declining Down Down Strong

Banknifty OI Analysis


  1. Dear Admin. Banknifty excel sheet giving error, no values showing. Error saying to run macros as high, but its already high, enabled, thanx

    • Hi Gurdip,

      Can you please download the Excel sheet again and click on Get Data button to refresh the sheet.

  2. Bank nifty option excel sheet not being populated. Tried to alter macros, security settings. Even inatalled excel 2016 . I have two laptops but this is the case eventhere. However nifty options r working fine. My idea is to analyse tht eithr put or calls whose OI are more OTM plus change in O I are maximum, then if we short them , profit is generated by time decay. The strategy can be double confirmed by hourly supertrend. I have been making some profits by this in nifty options recently but feel tht as weekly banknifty can give early profits as thus cycle repeats every week.
