Speaking on CNBC's Options Action, Pete Najarian said that he spotted unusually high options volume in Steel Dynamics (NASDAQ: STLD).

Approximately 4,000 contracts of the November 22 call options were traded Monday and investors were paying a premium of around $1.40. The break even for this trade would be at $23.40.

The stock had a good trading session as it established a new 52-week high and there is also a lot of bullish activity in the steel, iron ore and metallurgical space. Najarian explained that investors believe these sectors could move much higher, but it is hard to name a catalyst for such a move. Speculations about improving demand from China could be one reason.

Steel Dynamics spiked 3.62 percent higher and closed at $22.91.
