Open Interest (ОІ)

Indicator showing the total number of open short and long positions under a contract for all traders regarding this instrument.


Note: The open interest is broadcast online only in the Russian market, and only for futures. Foreign stock exchanges cannot configure it on a real time basis because not all of them submit OI data online. Some stock exchanges submit this data based on trading session results, e. g. Chicago Stock Exchange. Some stock exchanges do not submit OI at all.
