S&P 500 short interest

Short interest as a proportion of market capitalisation for the median stock in the S&P 500 index fell to 1.8 per cent at the beginning of this month, according to figures from Goldman Sachs, the lowest since the bank began tracking the data in the 2004. That compares to 2 per cent at the start of the year, and an average of 2.4 per cent over the past 15 years.
