    AFAIK the only up to date data is available to institutions and not the public. The exchanges provide delayed data that can be as old as a month or more.

    Notice the publication dates at the bottom. Short int #'s are always almost a mo. old. Only dealers ( market makers or specialist) have this info in a timely manner. They are only required to report once a mo. Since the specialist has the whole book he has total knowledge of short int. in a stock. Market makers only know what their particular firm has sold short. Nice little edge at any given time.
  5. well, we pay our damn increased SEC fees too, wheres our short interest info???
    i call shenanigans.....
