Analyse Active futures and options Contracts – Fyers One

Just as you traders use volumes to detect the potential of stock prices, analysing active futures and options contracts gives you an indication of where the stock prices are going to go in the future. Since the underlying stock has several futures and options contracts analysing why some contracts are more active than the others can give you a lot more clarity than just using conventional technical analysis methods. So let me show you how to use this advanced feature efficiently in a step by step process.

    I admire at the data and data analytical tools in Fyers One. But I have too many questions on how to use these. I trade in Futures mostly. The Open Interest which is shown under active contracts is not available on many trading plat forms. I generally depend on money control data for open interest.

    Is the open interest change shown on your platform is intraday data or daily data?
