Shorting Torchlight Energy Resources shares

There are currently 6.7 million Torchlight Energy Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as Torchlight Energy Resources's "short interest". This figure is 11.2% up from 6.0 million last month.

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

Torchlight Energy Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Torchlight Energy Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Torchlight Energy Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Torchlight Energy Resources shares traded daily (recently around 6.5 million). Torchlight Energy Resources's SIR currently stands at 1.02. In other words for every 100,000 Torchlight Energy Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1020 shares are currently held short.

However Torchlight Energy Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Torchlight Energy Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Torchlight Energy Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Torchlight Energy Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Torchlight Energy Resources shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0796% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Torchlight Energy Resources shares, roughly 80 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 Torchlight Energy Resources.
