Call options volume was two times put options volume on Monday as a lot of short dated calls were traded. Nathan added that one bullish trade caught his attention. Somebody was rolling up and out, explained Nathan. A trader sold to close 4,000 contracts of the September 160 calls and bought to open 4,000 contracts of the October 162.50 calls for $3.90. The trade breaks even at $166.40 or 3.03 percent above the closing price on Monday.
