There are currently 386,169 Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Western Copper and Gold Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 26.9% up from 304,199 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Western Copper and Gold Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Western Copper and Gold Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 665808.62068966). Western Copper and Gold Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.58. In other words for every 100,000 Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 580 shares are currently held short.

However Western Copper and Gold Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Western Copper and Gold Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0031% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Western Copper and Gold Corporation shares, roughly 3 shares are currently held short).
