Shorting DiDi Global shares

There are currently 83.9 million DiDi Global shares held short by investors – that's known as DiDi Global's "short interest". This figure is 5.4% up from 79.6 million last month.

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

DiDi Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DiDi Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DiDi Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DiDi Global shares traded daily (recently around 20.2 million). DiDi Global's SIR currently stands at 4.16. In other words for every 100,000 DiDi Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4160 shares are currently held short.

However DiDi Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DiDi Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable DiDi Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DiDi Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DiDi Global shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.3736% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DiDi Global shares, roughly 374 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 DiDi Global.
