Shorting Galiano Gold shares

There are currently 1.8 million Galiano Gold shares held short by investors – that's known as Galiano Gold's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% up from 1.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Galiano Gold shares can be evaluated.

Galiano Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Galiano Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Galiano Gold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Galiano Gold shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Galiano Gold's SIR currently stands at 1.04. In other words for every 100,000 Galiano Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1040 shares are currently held short.

However Galiano Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Galiano Gold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Galiano Gold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Galiano Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Galiano Gold shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0083% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Galiano Gold shares, roughly 8 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 Galiano Gold.
