Open interest is one of the best indicator to find where the market is expecting the move. I am still learning about open interest trading strategies, as per my experience these strategies are most likely to work well in those stocks/index where open interest is very high.
For those stocks where open interest is quite low, we may need to check the sector wise trends and do additional technical analysis.
Let me know if i can be of any help here!
