    I think this is a very good indicator to see the short term stock performance, could you please give some hint on where we could find this kind of information?

     

    Thanks

    Author’s reply » Zishi,

     

    Right now, SunGard Astec collects this data from dozens of banks and broker dealers and only publishes it on websites that require subscriptions to access (such as ShortSide.com). I'm posting lists on Seeking Alpha to try to generate additional interest in the product. If you'd like a free 30-day trial to ShortSide.com, I'd be more than happy to set you up.

     

    Meanwhile, the SEC is currently asking for public comment regarding the disclosure of short selling activity on a daily basis (www.bloomberg.com/news...). And other regulators around the world have already required short sellers to disclose their short positions on a daily basis, sometimes with only a two or three day lag. For instance, France, Japan, Greece and the UK (but for the UK only for select financial stocks), publishes hedge funds' short interest positions on a daily basis. Japan and France are the most interesting. Japan has been requiring public disclosure for over a year now. For Japan, go to this page on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's website -- www.tse.or.jp/english/.... In each day's zip file, you'll find PDFs for every hedge fund that had short positions over the threshold in Japanese equities. Interesting right?

     

    I hope this helps.
