Wonder if something is up ?
600 contracts for the 45 that expires in 2 days at .50 seems like a lot to me.There is also fairly sizeable volume the out months. Volume for Jan 50 and 52.50 contracts at 600 and 400 respectively. Over 100 Feb 50's have traded, and over 200 March 48's and 500.Put volume is almost zero.Added together, this is a good chunk of change. Someone seems to have a strong belief in a move north of 50 in the not too distant future.
Thanks did not see the Jan options volume.Definitely good to see this.We could see a quick move in the New Year ~~
Call volume was much higher in Nov for the Dec 55 calls and you saw what happened. I'm guessing its shorts who are hedging their bet.
