Yes, but with a slight difference; 40000 calls bought for 4.65 and puts and calls sold for 3.20 and 1.45. So apart from transaction costs (although adding up with 3 x 40.000 contracts) this trade paid for itself.
But they will definitely not want it to go below 85.

RXDX, The stock was up a lot and saw some Puts being bought for around .10 for $25 strike in Jul. Stock price is 26.85. Question is why does it show no open interest? Thanks for any explanation

@lavapit315

The reason is because RXDX was $15 before yesterday's massive gap up so there was no reason why anyone would've bought the July 25 Puts until now. It was just too much out of the money. It's also a stock where the avg daily option volume is quite low.

Big Option Play Of The Day - FCX

FCX has been on a tear since it broke out of its range on December 12. Weekly chart show entire candle above the Mendoza Line for the first time since 10/29/12. Monthly show almost into the cloud for the first time since October 2014. Needless to say, bulls have been pent up for 5 years!

I've been waiting for a pullback but there hasn't been one! Two big million dollar buys occur today even though it was up another 3.15% pushing its daily RSI to the thin air of 84.47. First was for $1 million when 14,503 of the 1/19/18 19 Calls bought at .69. Second was for $1.3 million when 15,592 of the 3/16/18 20 Calls bought for .85. Break even for the first buy is $19.69 and second is $20.85. The Calls volume for the March expiration today was $34.5K, massive for FCX.

I'm in as soon as its within spittin' distance of the daily 8 EMA. At this point, I might be waiting for a long time!!!

Thanks JP! I like Teck. Monthly showing breaking out. CLF is lagging behind so it's trying to catch up. Please feel free to keep suggesting high option volume momentum stocks.

@15minofPham
Can you explain "StoppedIM: Transaction was the execution of an order which was 'Stopped' at a price that did not constitute a Trade-Through on another market"

I was under the assumption that these were stop orders that were filled and not buys.

I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my stupid questions. :-)

Massive 82.000 contracts for UNP March 130 calls, representing $ 73 million. The trade was at the midpoint, but with the spread at 8.65 - 9.10 and the trade at 8.90 I would lean towards the calls being bought. Furthermore there were 11.000 calls traded ($ 21 million) half an hour later for the Jun 15 120 calls which had an open interest of 1.000 contracts, so these must have been a buy order.

My first thought when I saw these numbers was that the stock was probably going ex-div, but that is not until February.
