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.
