MicroStrategy Inc (NASDAQ:MSTR) is up 4.6% at $693.74 at last check, after news that the company has purchased 7,002 Bitcoins (BTC) for approximately $414.4 million in cash during the fiscal fourth quarter. Founder and CEO Michael Saylor has so far kept his promise of continuously buying the cryptocurrency, with plans to do so for years to come, despite already being its largest corporate investor. 

On the charts, MSTR has been falling since its early November peak, though it is now staging a bounce off the $655 level -- an area that has flipped between pressure and support in recent months. Year-to-date, the equity is up 79.3%. 

There is plenty of short squeeze potential as well. Short interest makes up 20.3% of the stock's available float, or nearly three days worth of pent-up buying power. 

Now could be a good time to weigh in on MSTR's next move with options. The security sports attractively priced premiums at the moment, per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 75%, which sits in the 13th percentile of its annual range. Plus, the equity's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) stands at 97 out of 100, meaning MSTR has exceeded options traders' volatility expectations during the past year.
