    Hefty call options volume?

    I detect both at NASDAQ and at Stock Options Channel, that today's volume in the $20 Strike Call dated Jan. 2015 is 754 contracts @ $1.46, while the open interest is 789.

    I'm always a bit skeptical of up-to-the-day options quotes because they seem to vary somewhat from one site to the next. We'll see how this shakes out after a day or so. But given the time frame and trajectory, I doubt these are net closings of open contracts. It would be huge if the open interest in these LEAPS increased by a big percentage in a single day.

    Maybe shorty is hedging :-) who knows
