the WSJ reported yesterday that short interest hit a record high. I don't know if that was NYSE, I assume it was, and I don't know if it's in absolute shares or if it's in percentage of volume, I suspect the former. either way, even though I didn't bother to read the article, it's a head's up to start looking at your volume spike down days, your VIX, etc. Calling DGabriel. nothing earthshaking here, just another position indicator.
