Shorting Braskem S-A shares

There are currently 309,918 Braskem S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Braskem S-A's "short interest". This figure is 28.6% up from 241,065 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Braskem S-A shares can be evaluated.

Braskem S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Braskem S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Braskem S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Braskem S-A shares traded daily (recently around 240246.51162791). Braskem S-A's SIR currently stands at 1.29. In other words for every 100,000 Braskem S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1290 shares are currently held short.

However Braskem S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Braskem S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Braskem S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Braskem S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Braskem S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0031% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Braskem S-A 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 Braskem S-A.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Braskem S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Braskem S-A's share price.
