Short Ratio

The higher the Short Ratio, the longer it would take to buy back the borrowed shares. In theory, the more short positions are currently outstanding, the faster it will be to cover shorted positions.

Short Ratio is typically used by traders and speculators to identify trends in current market sentiment for a particular equity instrument. In its simple terms this ratio shows how many days it will take all current short sellers to cover their positions if the price of a stock begins to rise.

Short Ratio In A Nutshell

When you see the percentage of the market being shorted getting higher, you can gather there is a bearish mentality in the current market settings. This type of statistic can be used in both fundamental research as well as technical. If you’ve been around the market long enough, you will have heard the term a short squeeze. When this occurs, it is when the market is going up and short sellers begin buying shares to cover their positions, contributing to the upward trend.

Shorting a market is when you borrow shares from a broker; sell them on the market, and then buying them back at hopefully a lower price, returning the shares to the lender. The short ratio is essentially letting the market know the number of share being shorted of that equity. Also, it can tell you how long it will take the borrower to buy those shares back.

Closer Look at Short Ratio

Shorting the market takes some skill as most people are passive investors and look to buy on dips and hold for the long term. With that in mind, be sure to complete research before shorting the market because it may not be for everyone. You have to keep in mind there may be a cost to short the shares that can eat into your profits. Short selling is a great way to take advantage of a short term market down swing, but as we all know, the market typically rounds and continues pushing to the upside.
