Oil prices keep going higher, too, with January-dated crude futures last seen up 0.7% at $61.38 per barrel.

One name seeing unusual options trading is Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR), as the social media stock keeps its hot week going. The shares rose 3.2% in yesterday's trading, and today they're edging higher again, last seen at $31.75 -- though the 50-day moving average is still applying pressure overhead. Calls are trading at three times the expected pace, and the weekly 12/27 32-strike call could be seeing buy-to-open activity, suggesting traders could be betting on more upside in the coming week.
