Stocks with Top Bearish Sentiment Based on Option Order Flow

?

What is the Top Bearish Signals Page?

Stocks showing high bearish signals based on actual trade put volume, dollars traded, implied volatility, put trade count and ATM/OTM volumes are presented in this report.


Order flow sentiment is a unique technical indicator of market momentum based on analysis of actual investor trading data. The theory is based on the belief that investors "bet" on stock or market direction given their willingness to purchase puts or puts at the high end of the bid/ask price spread. By calculating overall market sentiment based on actual trades, investors obtain valuable forward-looking insight on trending market direction when considering investment decisions for specific equities.


Bearish order flow sentiment is measured using five key metrics: Bearish put volume, Bearish put dollar amount traded, the IV level of the options, bearish orders and ATM/OTM put volume. We filter data to isolate trades where investors seek immediate execution, are willing to pay the full bid/ask spread, and where an additional related trade action to hedge risk is not apparent. Top Bearish Signals are listed for stocks having the highest Overall Strength.
