If you take a close look on the SP chart and short interesting number, you will fnd that the short position increased during the stock price decreased while the short position decreased during the stock price increases.
This is a clear indicator (or evidence) that the longs are winning the war, i.e.,
In order to drive the SP down, shorts need to dump the shares which were bought by people like me. When the share price goes up, the shorts need to covery and were buying the shares released from people like me who bought the shares at low.
So for every cycle (down-then-up), the longs like me make money which comes from the loss of the shorts.
