Page 1 of 2

At present, there are many tools for Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) traders to keep an eye on, but it is smart to monitor a company’s shorts. Some metrics we can use are: (a) the chunk of a company’s tradable shares that short sellers are presently short selling, and (b) the difference in short interest.

Augmented bearish shorting typically indicates what it implies: investors have grown less fond of a company. Overselling, though, sometimes has a bullish effect on share price, as short-ers can be forced to buy their stock.
