Shorting SilverCrest Metals shares

There are currently 2.8 million SilverCrest Metals shares held short by investors – that's known as SilverCrest Metals's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% down from 3.1 million last month.

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

SilverCrest Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SilverCrest Metals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SilverCrest Metals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SilverCrest Metals shares traded daily (recently around 606696.35974304). SilverCrest Metals's SIR currently stands at 4.67. In other words for every 100,000 SilverCrest Metals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4670 shares are currently held short.

However SilverCrest Metals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SilverCrest Metals shares, or, against the total number of tradable SilverCrest Metals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SilverCrest Metals's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SilverCrest Metals shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SilverCrest Metals shares, roughly 0 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 SilverCrest Metals.
