General Discussion · Daily Short Interest data
msg #123294

As far as I know both NYSE and NASDAQ present short interest data twice a month...with a delay of two weeks I believe...

While it is certainly something to look at; it also seems interesting to watch percent of shorts to the float on a daily basis....

I have been searching around and did not find much....maybe someone can suggest or elaborate on this topic...

What I have found:


Nice little web-site with short-interest data dating up to late 2011 and an interactive price/short interest chart. Unfortunately, it only

uses BATS data; therefore the statistics are not 100% accurate...(for past friday it shows 66kk for SPY while in reality it is 177kk)


This web-site presents the data in a chart with maximum look-back of around 4 years as well. While I liked it less than

shortanalytics; it uses data that was reported by Nas/NYSE/OTC to FINRA - therefore I assume it should add to the existing

data from BATS (shortanalytics).


And this is all what is available on the web right now - exchanges are required to report daily volumes by SEC, but

unfortunately (on purpose?) it is done in a *.txt format with 3000 pages a day worth of trades - complete lack of structure.

So if someone could help on the topic of the daily short interest data - that would be great.

Recent developments in SPX are no good....

I have been in XIV since mid-December quick sell-off, saw ups and downs but hesitated to take any action about it in fears that it

will just run away as I pull money out; wanted it to be a long play. I was thinking of taking it out in late April or May, since

seasonally it's a strong time. What are you guys thinking?

It makes a bit more sense to focus on un-leveraged regular ETF (RSX) instead of triple-bear RUSS?


Russia does not correlate with crude that hard anymore...there could be potential going into next 1-1.5 years if sanctions get lift off and pressure lifts off Ukraine...

Eman, strong reasoning - but all good things are coming to an end. Do you think it's overbought and hyped up?

I've read somewhere that a good time to sell the market is when even the most passive/pessimistic investors are pouring the money in.....Apple was the most popular stock in 2014's hyped up and pumped by buy-backs...

I'm still on are just some fun technical facts:

1) $130 is 161.8 for the 50% pull-back and other minor pull-back.
2) Difference from ema(200) at the 2-year resistance which resulted in at least 5% pull-back during past five occurences.
3) 2-year LRC 1SD boundary is even closer than in late November.


1) Short interest 03/31/2014: 155 mil. Short Interest 1/30/2015: 59 mil. Talk about a short-squeeze. It actually grew for the first time in the first half of January only to get squeezed again..

2) P/C ratio... $115 will be an entertaining level.

3) Goldman is more than 27 million shares all-together...for the past quarter


Selling Apple naked...idk..for now.....selling Apple/buying S&P....seems reasonable.

I am concerned with the today's VIX movement vs. S&P. Just way above the average.

"We are in a shitty situation right now. ~4.8% range with clear support and resistance. If today won't fill...that might be a breakaway"

Someone should ran some stats on the consecutive S&P performance after a gap down near/below previous sessions low. The odds might be significant
