    Large January Call Option Volume

    No, just the opposite. Suppose I have big losses in SODA. I want to take losses, but I don't want to miss the upside. I sell my stock and get the benefit of the losses. I buy calls that I don't exercise until after the 30 day wash sale has passed. If there is no move, I lose the value of the call. If there is a move I recover some portion of what I would have made had I kept my stock. I really thing a large holder or institution dumped today and hedged with those calls.
    Also, if you believe there will be a big move up after December tax selling ends, you have to sell today and can buy back on Dec. 30 to avoid wash sale and catch the January move back up.
    This stock is headed much higher after the tax selling ends. Stocks that are beaten up almost always tank more at year end on tax selling no matter what the fundamentals.
