When the short squeeze does occur, the small orders with be in the 10K to 99K share range, plenty of those, a significant number in the 100K-999K share range, and more than a few in the 1M+ range, and they viciously buy. The price will move upwards like you would not believe, I have been in two positions in the past where a short squeeze has occurred, so I know what one looks like when it happens, but it should not be much longer when it does occur, my adivce, dont be short when the squeeze occurs..
Specially the rating agencies.
Shame on them. NOK gets the discount of minority stake resolved and then some and their response is to punish NOK with all the bells and whistles at their disposal.
CNBC today has a good paper on corruption as if it only applied to other countries. I think it is good and heavy here too. The whole affair of short selling smacks of that. There were plenty of venues to speculate. To steal consent from widows and orphans takes the cake.
In Chile they just settled a mass rip off by colluded pharmaceuticals companies that was arrived at by making the wrong doers donate to Charities that they probably control a pittance of what they may have absconded by through wide spread price fixing.
Funny enough that for a banana republic Chile has also readily endorsed short selling too.
