Earlier this afternoon a trader bought 761 of the CSIQ Jan 2nd Weekly 23 Calls for $0.95 while stock was trading $23.86. The stock ripped higher after these calls hit OptionHacker and shares of CSIQ traded as high as $24.60 meaning that a trader could have exit the calls or sold stock against them for a very fast profit.
