Mid Day Most Active Stock Options August 11, 2009

As of mid day the top ten most active option contracts traded are:
  1. Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) August 4 Call Option
  2. Citigroup Inc. August 3 Put Option
  3. Citigroup Inc. September 4 Call Option
  4. Citigroup Inc. August 5 Call Option
  5. CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) September 47.5 Call Option
  6. Citigroup Inc. September 3 Put Options
  7. Bank of America Corportation (NYSE:BAC) August 16 Put Options
  8. Citigroup Inc. September 5 Call Options
  9. Bank of America Corportation August 15 Put Options
  10. Citigroup Inc. January 2010 5 Put Options
There is nothing too surprising about the option contracts traded today, except for the unusual activity in the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX). It looks like someone is anticipating a sharp decline in the stock market, speculating with the Volatility Index September 47.5 Call options. Here is an option strategy I outlined a few days ago to trade the Volatility Index. Sphere: Related Content
