The shares of electric vehicle maker NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) are up 1.3% to trade at $559.42, amid reports that the company could be working to solve stock-level shortage issues with its RTX 3000 graphics card by bringing back an older model. The equity is showing signs of life on the charts, ready to lock in its third-consecutive win while looking at its second close back atop long-time support at the 130-day moving average. Plus, NVDA sports a healthy 128.3% year-over-year lead, and a 6.7% rise in 2021 to boot.

The weekly 4/9 560-strike call is getting the most action today, closely followed by the 570-strike from the same series, with new positions being opened at both contracts.
