Nearing the halfway mark in today's session, here are the individual equity names with the most call and put buying on optionMONSTER's ActionTracker data system.

Bank of America (BAC): Some 32,000 July 14 calls were purchased, mostly for $0.09 to $0.12, as investors look for upside in the share price. BAC rose 0.97 percent to $13.50.

Research In Motion (BBRY): More than 11,000 December 20 calls were purchased for $0.12 to $0.15, but volume was barely half open interest at the strike. BBRY fell 0.32 percent to $9.25.

Equinix (EQIX): Volume surged in the July 190 calls and the July 200 calls. Volume was below open interest at both strikes, suggesting that an existing bullish trade was closed profitably. EQIX rose 3.74 percent to $197.97.
