Seems like a very simple scenario if he is trading with that much size. Just watch the time and sales tape and see if his trades actually show up. If he's trading any round number of contracts in single blocks, e.g. 50, 100, 200, 300, 500, then it won't be that hard to track him live in the markets. If he is using a simple algorithm to reconstruct his blocks and fire them in singles, that's a bit harder. But surely for example, if he's day trading, then at some point he probably fires a small block order and then you should be able to see whether or not that trade was real looking through the time and sales.
