Nokia (NOK): More than 36,000 April 4.50 puts were bought, mostly for $0.48, as investors brace for a reversal in the share price. NOK rose 0.43 percent to $4.64.

Bank of America (BAC): Some 11,500 March 9 puts were bought, mostly for $0.03 and $0.04. Volume was below open interest, so the investor may have closed an existing short position or could be looking for a drop. BAC fell 0.18 percent to $11.33.
