I wasn't sure which topic to post this under, so please free to bump me :-)

I am trying to wrap my mind around volume and open interest as they pertain to OPTIONS.

For example, if you could please have a look at this breakdown:

http://www.asx.com.au/asx/markets/optionPrices.do?by=underlyingCode&underlyingCo de=awc&expiryDate=Jun+2010&optionType=Call

I have three questions about this:

1.Where the exercise prices are at 1.600 and 1.800 there is VOLUME of 140 and 150 respectively. What do these numbers mean in reality?

2.Thinking of those same strike prices again but this time looking at the OPEN INTEREST column. Is it the case that there are literally 1570 and 3448 orders to be filled at these strike prices or do the numbers mean something entirely different?

3.What does it mean at some of the other strike prices where there is healthy OPEN INTEREST but no VOLUME?

Thanks heaps.

Hi arthurbach4,
1. The volume figures mean the same as they do in shares (ie the number of contracts traded on the day)
2. The open interest is the number of contracts in existence.
3. Simply that there was no trading in those contracts on that day.

Cheers
Dave
