Shorting Golden Star Resources shares

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Golden Star Resources shares can be evaluated.

Golden Star Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Golden Star Resources's SIR currently stands at 3.6. In other words for every 100,000 Golden Star Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3600 shares are currently held short.

However Golden Star Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Golden Star Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Golden Star Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Golden Star Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Golden Star Resources shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0154% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Golden Star Resources shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).
