    Good morning!

    From Wikipedia,
    Short squeeze is a rapid increase in the price of a stock that occurs when there is a lack of supply and an excess of demand for the stock.

    It's "SEMANTICS"

    Even Wikipedia immediately thinks of stocks!

    For ETF's: Short squeeze is a rapid increase in the price of a commodity that occurs when there is a lack of supply and an excess of demand for "that" commodity!

    Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it? Get it?

    It doesn't matter if the stock/ETF price goes rocketing UP! It could barely move, or go negative! That doesn't matter!

    The bottom line is the shorts get squeezed, thru margin or............................ when they just can't take it anymore!
    At it's very basics, that is a short squeeze!
    Monty Python: It's a dead PARROT!

    And "less" money turns into "more" money............................................. But I haven't figured that one out yet :(
    Someone's gotta be making money on that. Would that be the same as a MM in stocks?

    Now I'm curious??? There is no infinite loss on shorting this ETF. Unless you bet on "way" too many shares.
    There's a game to be learned here somewhere, huh?
