SQ stocks are pacing for their best day since January 24, and the highest closure since mid-March. Equity has rallied around 30% since skimming the $ 60 level in early June, but is now staring at a familiar roof in the $ 79- $ 81 neighborhood. This region has contained most breakout attempts since October 2018.
Square has still seen about 92,000 call options trades already today – four times its average intraday volume. While intraday set volume runs three times the norm, the 36,000 SQ exchanges are still dwarfed by what we have seen on the call page.

Meanwhile, despite the stock's impressive rally over the past few weeks, short-term interest rates have risen by 11.2% over the last two reporting periods. These bearish bets now account for about 9.3% of SQ's total available flow. Should the stock prolong its performance, a short press could add fuel to the equity fire.
