this data is NOT up-to-date, not 20 minutes, not 1 hour, not days, more like weeks You DO NOT know the current short interested or when they will decide to cover. If you knew, you could predict every single short squeeze
The shorts have been doing this for a long time in this stock and the covering goes in cycles and use that as the guide. You know that the hedge short is working to close it out when you see it spike the pps down hard with little retail longs selling into it. It is doing that right now. It can't get more obvious.
