How To read Nifty Rollover Report and Interpret Nifty Rollovers and Stock Rollovers?

Nifty rollover numbers or stock rollover numbers are generally expressed as a percentage of rolled positions to total open positions. They do not offer much information when analysed on standalone basis. But they get immensely informative when we compare them with their trailing three or six month average and take rollover cost plus price movement into consideration. This comparison provides a great insight into the prevailing sentiment into the markets. As a rule of thumb, investors should focus on following points while analysing rollover report:

Future rollover numbers which are well above their 6 months average with high rollover cost and rising prices are indicative of bullish trader sentiments.

Derivative rollover numbers below 6 months average with low rollover cost and falling prices are indicative of bearish trader sentiments.
