Daily FINRA reported short trades is only the major markets and often does not include a fair percentage of the trades. The short activity is still very much an overall mystery, and is one of the major shortcomings of the regulatory oversight. REG SHO is a joke, designed and administered by the 'mostly voluntary' reporting of the industry that is responsible for the abuses.
Guess that is why PLUG was only up 4 cents yesterday! Where is the commitment shorty?
Should move up nicely' once we break thro9ugh that level!
Shorts still active, but, below the 20 day average!
Hey egg, daily short trading volume is reported from the major markets every trading day after the close. Where you all-knowing 'experts' come from, I don't know! Yes total position volume is reported twice per month! Maybe you can't access the daily data on your 'flip phone'?
Thumbs down? Some folks don't like facts and data? What is the problem, shorty? Margin call got your accounts?
Shorts desperate and PLUG still going up!
With 34m shares short, I don't think that is Mom and Pop shorting. I know you don't like actual facts, but, we longs do!
Not if one is long and in the process of accumulating like crazy as I have been, mostly in the $1.70 range. May have been longs last chance! Thanks, chump!
Shadow That is the good news dingleberry! The big money shorts will need a lot more volume to cover which means they haven't really gotten started, yet! You individual shorts are already in a world of hurt! Any individual who shorts a $2 stock is highly unlikely to have a very large amount of staying power when PLUG gets in to a major move up!
The numbers I am referring to are the 'daily short trading volume' as reported by the NYSE, NASDAQ, and OTC markets to FINRA. The numbers are reported daily after the markets close and are normally posted around 6:00 pm EST. They are numbers for that day. This is not data from analysts.
That is true, however the reported volume is from the major public markets! The 'adf' and 'darkpool' volume where most of the BS trades happen typically are not reported through FINRA. However, FINRA reported volume is a good (and likely understated) indicator of totals! If you care to work your way through the 134 pages of ' Reg Sho', you will see more loopholes than enforceable regulations. Our government at work.
In the ideal World, a lawsuit would be a no brainer Unfortunately, In the real World, it takes lots of money, lots of time (years) and even a 'layup' case is fraught with the unexpected. My experience, even when you win, all you net out is the satisfaction of knowing you were right, not much else except legal expenses. Judges don't like to place penalties on management, but, much prefer to hold the company liable. (your company) The judge will push for a settlement rather than a judgment. The attorneys on both sides will make a bundle. Management will move on unscathed and well off. Only in rare cases (Enron, etc) does any individual get any penalty at all. Fraud is hard to prove. If the satisfaction of 'doing something' is worth your time and money, please go for it, and I would love to see you prove me wrong! Just my humble opinion. I am long PGN!
and PLUG was up 2.73%! Looks like shorts are in trouble going forward!
