However Tyler Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tyler Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tyler Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tyler Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tyler Technologies shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0489% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tyler Technologies shares, roughly 49 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Tyler Technologies.
