Personal Info
Location Daily Short Sale Volume Reporting’s are deceiving
The short isn’t really a short it is the execution of a long sale by a market maker.
Investment Philosophy 1. all marketmaker sells to buyers for which the MM doesnt at that moment possess the stock would go onto the list. the shorts data is sent to SEC at time of execution, so during the course of a day, a MM may trade 20M shares of company xyz, of which 10M of those shares were initiated as short sales and the other 10M were buys to cover those shorts.

shorts data explained...
Interests/Hobby despite the fact that their net position at the end of the day is flat, the data would show 10M shares as having been short sales.
this applies even to grey sheet stocks. despite the fact there is no MM making bids and asks, MM's can and do call around to other MM's to find willing sellers to match buy orders and vice-versa.
Favorite Quote 2. the other factor that could affect the daily short figure is very interesting. if a sale is being initiated by the holder of restricted 144 stock, even though the owner of those shares is technically a long, the sale is listed as a short sale because the actual certificates are not yet "clean" via the transfer agent.
Person I'd Like to Meet In order to ascertain the true "open short" position one should look at the bi-monthly short report.
