Google short analytics and you can get a daily update on the amount of short shares traded on a stock. For ecte it has often been in the 40-50% area over the last 2 weeks (this is percentage traded short that day, not total short percentage). In fact Dec 6-10 it was over 50% each of the 3 trading days. But the short interest has dropped significantly in the last 2 days. I was hoping they would drive it a little lower today so I could pick some up, but I gave up and bought at 3.20.
