After delaying its first launch of its Electron rocket from the U.S., Rocket Lab USA Inc (NASDAQ:RKLB) lowered its fourth-quarter revenue forecast. The company blamed bad weather conditions for the delay, as well as regulatory delays from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

In response, RKLB is down 2.4% to trade at $3.81. The shares remain just above their June 30, all-time low of $3.53, but are down more than 68% lower year-to-date. Meanwhile, Rocket Lab USA's 40-day moving average has moved in as a layer of resistance.

Options traders have been looking for a bottom for quite some time, per RKLB's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 15.34 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). In addition, the equity sports a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 45.08. These ratios rank in the 100th and 96th percentile, respectively, of annual readings, and indicate calls are outpacing puts at a healthy rate.
