    History repeats

    So every time options trading explodes it is due to impending terrorism?

    Or is that only for Puts?

    More than a few people were speculating that a buyout was in the offing (and quite a few speculated that it was just a rumor). They accomplished this "speculation" by buying and selling BB&T stock. Those who were willing to make a bigger bet(or perhaps needed a hedge) did so with Puts & Calls.

    It doesn't mean they knew what was going to happen.

    What possible connection do you see to 9/11?
