CF: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Shares of CF Industries rebounded sharply yesterday, and one trader is betting on more gains ahead for the fertilizer producer.

optionMONSTER's Heat Seeker system shows that a trader bought 4,950 August 210 calls for the ask price of $2.76 and sold the same number of the August 230 calls for the bid price of $0.60. Volume was above the previous open interest at each strike, indicating new activity.

This bullish call spread cost the trader $2.16, which is the amount at risk if shares remain below $210. The maximum gain is $17.84 if the stock is above $230 by expiration in mid-August. (See our Education section)

CF climbed 4.27 percent to $187.09 yesterday after seeing its lowest prices since June last week. Shares were above $230 into the start of January.

More than 16,000 CF options traded overall yesterday, quadruple its daily average of 4,000 for the last month.
