Call traders are flooding eBay Inc's (NASDAQ:EBAY) options pits today, with the contracts crossing at six times the average intraday pace. By the numbers, 62,000 calls have changed hands versus fewer than 8,900 puts. Meanwhile, short-term contracts are in high demand, as evidenced by EBAY's 30-day at-the-money implied volatility, which is up 13.4% at 20.1%.

Most active by a mile is the July 62.50 call, where more than 18,200 contracts are on the tape.

A move north of here would mark a record high for shares of EBAY.

Today's accelerated call activity just echoes the withstanding trend seen in EBAY's options pits in recent months. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the stock's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 2.79 sits in the 86th percentile of its annual range.
