Shorting Zhongchao shares

There are currently 11,120 Zhongchao shares held short by investors – that's known as Zhongchao's "short interest". This figure is 59.9% down from 27,765 last month.

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

Zhongchao's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zhongchao's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zhongchao shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zhongchao shares traded daily (recently around 92666.666666667). Zhongchao's SIR currently stands at 0.12. In other words for every 100,000 Zhongchao shares traded daily on the market, roughly 120 shares are currently held short.

However Zhongchao's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zhongchao shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zhongchao shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zhongchao's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zhongchao shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zhongchao shares, roughly 1 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 Zhongchao.
