As Bloomberg reports, bets that crude oil will retreat below $25 a barrel have reached an all-time high as stockpiles continue to grow.

Open interest, or the amount of total contracts outstanding, for March West Texas Intermediate crude $25 put options rose to 29,023 on Jan. 22, the highest among all March WTI options. The puts expire on Feb. 17.

“There is a big debate surrounding $25,” said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at the Price Futures Group in Chicago. “A lot of people believe that we are going to test that area before we bottom.”
