UAL (UAUA) is off 22 cents to $10.93 and an investor sells 11,500 Jan11 $10 calls to buy 20,000 Jan11 $15 calls. This looks like a roll up in strikes. If so, it probably closes out a position opened on November 11 when an investor bought 10,000 Jan11 $10 calls along with 10,000 Mar 4 puts. No action in the March 4 puts yet today. Another investor, or possibly the same, appears to have sold the Jun 10 – 14 (1X2) call ratio spread, 2000X, which might also be a roll up from the Jun 10s to the 14s.
