Equity Short Interest Reporting Application Programming Interface (API)
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 4560, member firms are required to report total short positions in all customer and proprietary firm accounts in all equity securities to FINRA on a bi-monthly basis. These filings are made online using the Short Interest reporting system accessible via Firm Gateway at firms.finra.org.
All firms that report short interest to FINRA are responsible for maintaining current and previous cycle short interest reports pursuant to SEC recordkeeping requirements. The web-based system is the only method for reporting the firm’s proprietary and customer short positions in NASDAQ, NYSE, NYSE American, NYSE Arca, Bats and OTC equity securities.
