    Short Interest


    Noticed the short interest back up a few million shares in the US,- however does anyone know where to find the short interest # in France (as they say this is the most shorted stock in France-) as that will give impetus to the up side when we start to move higher again ? Thanks !

      Securities lending

      When a security is sold, the seller is contractually obliged to deliver it to the buyer. If a seller sells a security short without owning it first, the seller needs to borrow the security from a third party to fulfill its obligation. Otherwise, the seller will "fail to deliver," the transaction will not settle, and the seller may be subject to a claim from its counterparty.
      Certain large holders of securities, such as a custodian or investment management firm, often lend out these securities to gain extra income, a process known as securities lending. The lender receives a fee for this service. Similarly, retail investors can sometimes make an extra fee when their broker wants to borrow their securities. This is only possible when the investor has full title of the security, so it cannot be used as collateral for margin buying.

    • The most banks and brookers in EU r not lending shares. USA is the SHORTS country. You don´t even have to check it. Just look to the trend by the NYSE open and you know where the shorts come from... The manipulators r here in Europe regulated and rationalized even at the ETF niveao.
