As of today the top ten most active stock options traded were:

  1. Chevron (CVX) November 75 Call Options
  2. Chevron December 70 Call Options
  3. S&P 500 SPDR (SPY) December 100 Put Options
  4. Aflac (AFL) November 35 Call Options
  5. S&P 500 SPDR June 94 Put Options
  6. S&P 500 SPDR November 110 Call Options
  7. S&P 500 SPDR November 110 Put Options
  8. Volatility Index (VIX) November 25 Put Options
  9. Chevron January 65 Call Options
  10. Aflac November 40 Call Options

Both Aflac and Chevron will be spinning dividends out Monday which is most likely the reason for them trading among the most active option contracts today. Judging on today’s activity I would say there is some bullish bet going into the November options expiration, but as we’ve many times in the past few months, there seems to be bearish betting already for the forward month (December).
