There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares can be evaluated.

BlackRock Core Bond Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BlackRock Core Bond Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares traded daily (recently around 163687.64044944). BlackRock Core Bond Trust's SIR currently stands at 0.89. In other words for every 100,000 BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 890 shares are currently held short.

However BlackRock Core Bond Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlackRock Core Bond Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlackRock Core Bond Trust shares, roughly 3 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against BlackRock Core Bond Trust.
