Chipmaker Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) is down 4.8% at $222.61 this morning, amid reports that the company is preparing to pull out of a $40 billion takeover of British tech provider Arm. This comes after the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued the company to block the transaction.

Despite Wall Street's continued interest in the semiconductor sector, Nvidia stock has had a rough go on the charts. Now pacing for its sixth-consecutive loss, NVDA has already shed 23.8% in 2022, though it still maintains a 64% year-over-year lead. A far cry from its Nov. 22 all-time high of $346.47, today's pullback has the security testing support at the 200-day moving average.

Options bears are likely enjoying these headwinds, as puts have been a popular choice of late. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), Nvidia stock sports a 10-day put/call volume ratio that sits in the 88th annual percentile, indicating puts have been purchased over calls at a faster-than-usual clip.
