More than 25,000 each of the September 17 and November 18 calls have traded, according to optionMONSTER's Heat Seeker system. Volume was below open interest in the nearer-term strike, indicating that a position was being rolled forward.
optionMONSTER systems detected the sale of September 17 calls for $0.92 and the purchase of November 18 calls for $0.75. The trader is taking some money off the table while buying another two months to position for more upside. (See our Education section)
