Short interest reaches a record low.  

Short interest explained: 

  • Short interest is often expressed as a number yet is more telling as a percentage.
  • An increase in short interest signals that investors have become more bearish, while a decrease in short interest signals they have become more bullish.
  • Extremes in short interest are considered by some traders to be a contrarian indicator. For example, an extremely high short interest for a stock may indicate that investors have become too bearish, and the price may actually be due for a reversal to the upside.
  • Short interest is typically published by the stock exchanges once per month, although the Nasdaq publishes a report twice a month.

We are contrarians…
