Yamana Gold (AUY) is up 10 cents to $9.34 and the Mar 8/Apr 9 call spread is active for a second day. Looks like a strategist collected 30 cents, 10000X. Like yesterday, it appears to be an expiration-related roll of calls from March to April and up one strike price, with the investor looking to maintain a bullish position in the gold miner through the April options expiration (28 days). After a $69 rally yesterday, gold is down $5.8 to $953 an ounce.
