Open Interest (OI)

It is a popular indicator to identify the traders interest in a particular Option.

Open interest measures the interest of traders in an Option. It tells a trader about the total number of a particular options contracts are currently traded but not yet exercised, assigned or squared off. For example, say 5 traders are holding 20 lots of contract. So the open interest for that day would be 100.
