    I am wondering if there is a way to chart the amount of short interest on a stock or an index?

    Is it possible to track how many shares are short on a given stock?
  2. You can obtain the raw data out of the Wall Street Journal of Barrons each month when it comes out. Check for the dates.

    I am rather dubious that this data can be readily/easily formatted into a charting application. You would literally have to do it by hand, me tinks.
