Dell Technologies Inc (NYSE:DELL) is down 3.2% to trade at $40.89 at last check, after becoming the latest tech giant to announce layoffs. The company will let go of roughly 5% of its workforce, or 6,650 employees, as it struggles with slow personal computer demand and prepares for a potential recession.

The equity just ran into a familiar ceiling at its 200-day moving average, a trendline that hasn't been cleared on a closing basis since late March. However, support remains at the $39 region, where DELL has spent the last few weeks consolidating around. Year-over-year, the tech stock is down 30%.

Overall options volume is today running at double the intraday average, with 856 calls and 381 puts across the tape so far. Most popular is the 2/10 43-strike call, followed by the 41-strike put in the same series, with new positions currently being bought to open at both.

Options look like a good way to weigh in on Dell Technologies stock's next move. This is per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 28%, which ranks in the low 7th percentile of readings from the last 12 months, indicating options traders are pricing in low volatility expectations.

Furthermore, the security's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at a high 88 out of 100. This means DELL has exceeded option traders' volatility expectations during the past year.
