Marathon Oil (MRO) loses 45 cents to $49.63 and the April 45 – 50 call spread is sold at $3.34, 20000X. It’s possibly a roll up in strike prices, from in-the-moneys to at-the-moneys. If so, it probably exits one leg of April 41 – 45 bullish risk-reversals that saw heavy trading on 1/13. Shares are up 15.4 percent since that time.
