Khouw noticed one particularly large trade. A trader bought 20,500 contracts of the January 121/127 call spread for $0.52. The trade breaks even at $121.52 or 3.14 percent above the current stock price. Khouw explained that the trader expects TLT to rise or to put it differently, he expects the long rate to fall, maybe as much as 50 basis points.
