The volume is less than 300 and it shows the put value going down not up.

If the volume was in the tens of thousands and the prices were going up significantly then I could see that argument.

More importantly all put, call and futures action ends on the 3rd friday of each month (the socalled "triple witching".

So if this doesn't go down on friday by a significant amount the point is moot.
