TIF: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Nearing the halfway mark in today's session, here are the individual equity names with the most call and put buying on optionMONSTER's ActionTracker data system.

Dollar General (DG): Giant blocks traded in the December 50 calls for $1.50 and the December 52.50 calls for $0.60 as investors positioned for upside in the discount retailer. Volume was more than 7 times open interest at both strikes.  DG rose 0.56 percent to $49.86.

Tiffany's (TIF): A block of 13,818 February 67.50 calls were bought. The trade was smaller than open interest, so the trade may result from an existing short position being closed. TIF fell 6.84 percent to $59.37.

Celsion (CLSN): Some 7,000 January 3 puts were sold for $0.50 and an equal number of April 3s were purchased for $1.60 as protective position was rolled forward in time. CLSN fell 1.50 percent to $7.21.

Intel (INTC): Blocks of 48,000 contracts each traded in the January 21 puts and the December 21 puts. It appears the investor was closing a money-losing calendar spread to avoid being assigned shares three weeks from now. INTC fell 2.09 percent to $19.67.
