Open Interest (ОІ)

This indicator shows the total number of open short and long positions for the contract held by all market participants for this instrument.

Please note: In online mode, open interest is shown only for futures on the Russian market, Binance and Bybit exchanges. It is not possible to set it up in real time for most exchanges 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.
