Why short-term interest is important
Short interest is the number of shares that have been sold short but not yet covered or closed. Short selling is when a trader sells shares of a company he does not own, hoping that the price will fall. Traders make money from short selling when the price of the stock falls and they lose when it rises.
Short-term interest rates are important to track because they can act as an indicator of market sentiment towards a particular stock. An increase in short-term interest rates can signal that investors have become more bearish, while a decrease in short-term interest rates can be a signal that they have become more bullish.
