Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) stock call options have been dominating the number of put options in the market for the month of January.
MULN shares have dropped since it peaked around $0.44 two weeks ago after the company revealed a number of risk factors that caused shares to tumble.
However, the amount of call options in the market compared to put options suggest investors remain bullish on where prices are headed.
Volume Distribution – MULN Stock Webull
On Tuesday, we’re seeing Mullen Automotive has 43.21K total call options versus only 290 put options (1:30hr prior to closing bell).
MULN stock call option volume went as high as 194K during the first week of January.
That same day, put options weighed in lightly at 12.7K compared to the latter.
However, shares have come down from its bull run earlier in January.
Shareholders suspect naked shorts are at work, keeping shares from rising despite the heavy demand.
MULN has a current short interest of 13.15% (updated daily).
This means the company is shorted despite majority of sentiment being bullish.
Heavy buying pressure will be the trigger MULN stock needs to create a disruption in the market.
