The float

Discussion in 'Trading' started by asdfghj7, Jul 15, 2008.

  1. Using IB or whoevers short interest as a guide before getting short a stock, what percentage or ratio of a stocks short interest should I use to determine if I should get in. Basically, from a total newbie perspective, what am I precisely looking for on IB's website that says 'great low short interest', shorting Intel today is a go, OR 'very high short interest', in Intel today, better not short. An example would be very helpful. Thanks
