Not sure that the Yahoo finance option reporting is particularly accurate. They are still reporting the same volume numbers from last week. Anyway, the open interest on the options in question is 280 and 180. Not sure what to make of the volume from last week.
I placed a spread trade on the Jan' 14 $40 puts and calls. Selling the $40 puts and buying the $40 calls for a credit of $280 per contract. Could be worth $1,500 per contract at expiration.
Schwab is not showing any volume on the Jan '14 $15 calls for Feb. 1 and no Jan '14 $10 calls at all. Also, the link you provided does not work. Would you mind double checking the link or providing the volume/ open interest details as you understand them?
There are 7,340 oi contracts on the Jan' 14 $35 calls. Volume on Feb. 1 was 197. This may be a nice way to play a move to 55 by the end of the year. Worth considering selling the Jan. '14 35 puts to finance a portion of the purchase.
