Introduction

This short interest tracker provides a variety of short interest related data, sourced from a variety of partners. The data is organized by frequency of updates, with intraday data at the top (short shares availability, short borrow fee rate), daily data (short volume, fails-to-deliver) in the middle, and the slowest updated data (short interest) at the bottom. Note that short interest is published twice-monthly, on a schedule a set by FINRA.

Where does Fintel get its data? We source our short interest data from a variety of providers. The Short Interest figures we provide are sourced directly from the stock exchanges (NASDAQ, NYSE, NYSE American, NYSE Arca, CBOE, and IEX) and FINRA. This is the official data and covers a broad spectrum of the market. We do not source short interest from a single broker. For Canadian, Australian, and Hong Kong markets, the short interest is published by the regulatory agencies of those countries. We get this data directly from those agencies on a daily or twice-weekly basis. The float and shares outstanding we use are sourced from Capital IQ, which is one of the top firms that provide this data.

Is short interest self-reported, and therefore unreliable? Short interest is not self-reported. FINRA and U.S. exchange rules require that brokerage firms report short interest data to FINRA on a per-security basis for all customer and proprietary firm accounts twice a month, around the middle of the month and again at the end of each month. See Short Interest — What It Is, What It Is Not. for more information.

Are dark pool trades counted in short interest figures? Yes, they are. The primary difference between a dark pool and a lit exchange is that pre-trade information such as bid/ask are not available. However, once a trade is made, dark pool trades are published on the tape and tracked like every other trade. When it is time to report, any open short positions are reported, no matter what type of trading venue those shares were acquired on.

Short Squeeze Score

The Short Squeeze Score is the result of a sophisticated, multi-factor quantitative model that identifies companies that have the highest risk of experiencing a short squeeze. The scoring model uses a combination of short interest, float, short borrow fee rates, and other metrics. The number ranges from 0 to 100, with higher numbers indicating a higher risk of a short squeeze relative to its peers, and 50 being the average.

Update Frequency: Intraday

See our Short Squeeze Leaderboards for US, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong

Gamma Squeeze Score (beta)

The Gamma Squeeze Score is the result of a multi-factor quantitative model that identifies companies that have the highest risk of experiencing a gamma squeeze. The number ranges from 0 to 100, with higher numbers indicating a higher risk of a short squeeze relative to its peers, and 50 being the average.

This is an experimental feature. We welcome your suggestions for improvement.

Short Shares Availability

This table shows the number of shares of US:GME available to be shorted at a leading prime brokerage. It is not the total number of shares available to short, nor is it the short interest.

It does not include data from other brokers or dark pools. It is a small sample, and it is useful for tracking the rise and fall in demand for shares throughout the day and weeks. It should not be treated as an absolute number of shares that are available to short in the market.

We update our database every 30 minutes but only display changes, in order to improve readability.

Short Borrow Fee Rates

GME / GameStop Corp. short borrow fee rates are shown in the following table. This table shows the interest rate that must be paid by a short seller of US:GME to the lender of that security. This fee is shown as an annual percentage rate (APR). Lenders are funds or individuals that own the security that have indicated to the broker that they are willing to lend it out. Dividends paid to a shorted security go to the owner/lender of the security, not to the borrower.

Start, Min, Max, Latest (Borrow Rates)
These represent borrow rates for the day, with the rate at the start of the day, the end of the day (or the latest for the current day), the minimum rate in the day, and the maximum rate for the day. Unlike the Options Implied Borrow Rates, our source for this data always presents them as positive numbers, and they represent an annualized interest rate that is paid by the borrower for the shares.

Update Frequency: Intraday every 30 minutes.

Short Sale Volume (Combined Exchange + Off-Exchange )

The combined on-exchange and off-exchange short sale volume for GME / GameStop Corp. is provided in the table below. In order to calculate an accurate short volume ratio, we gather data from a number of trading venues, but not ALL trading venues. This is important because it means the aggregate short and total volume columns do not show the actual volumes across all trading venues, but just the venues we track.

FINRA Short Volume
Number of short shares traded off-exchange reported by FINRA. This includes both the exempt and non-exempt.
CBOE Short Volume
Number of short shares traded reported by CBOE
PSX/BX Short Volume
Number of short shares traded reported by NASDAQ on the PSX/BX trading venues
Aggregate Short Volume
FINRA Short Volume + CBOE Short Volume + PSX/BX Short Volume. This is not the total short volume on all trading venues.
Aggregate Total Volume
FINRA Total Volume + CBOE Total Volume + PSX/BX Total Volume. This is not total volume on all trading venues.

Fails-To-Deliver

The values of total fails-to-deliver shares represent the aggregate net balance of shares that failed to be delivered as of a particular settlement date. Fails to deliver on a given day are a cumulative number of all fails outstanding until that day, plus new fails that occur that day, less fails that settle that day. The figure is not a daily amount of fails, but a combined figure that includes both new fails on the reporting day as well as existing fails. In other words, these numbers reflect aggregate fails as of a specific point in time, and may have little or no relationship to yesterday's aggregate fails. Thus, it is important to note that the age of fails cannot be determined by looking at these numbers. If all shares were delivered on a particular day, then there will be no entry in the table.

Update Frequency: SEC publishes daily data in batches that are delivered twice monthly and lagged about two weeks. So, for example, daily data for the month of March would arrive on our around mid April.

GME Short Interest (Daily Fintel Updates)

This section uses the official NYSE-supplied short interest and provides some value-added metrics, calculated daily. Short Interest is updated twice monthly on set schedule, but float can be updated more frequently (although it does not change every day), so we provide daily updates of the Short Interest % Float for the last fifteen days. Days To Cover is calculated daily based on the most recent five day trading volume.

Update Frequency: Short Interest - Twice Monthly. Float - Daily (although changes infrequently) Short Interest Publication Schedule

Short Interest (Official NYSE Data)

This data is the official short interest data, as provided by NYSE. Short Interest is the total number of open short positions of a security. Days to Cover is the short interest divided by the average volume. The Days to Cover listed here is the official value provided by the NYSE and may differ from the Days To Cover published elsewhere on Fintel because we use a shorter lookback period when calculating average volume.
