There are currently 4.6 million Agora shares held short by investors – that's known as Agora's "short interest". This figure is 3% down from 4.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Agora shares can be evaluated.
Agora's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Agora's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Agora shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Agora shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Agora's SIR currently stands at 1.77. In other words for every 100,000 Agora shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1770 shares are currently held short.
However Agora's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Agora shares, or, against the total number of tradable Agora shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Agora's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Agora shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Agora 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 Agora.
