Equity Short Interest Data


FINRA publishes the short interest reports it collects from broker-dealers for all exchange-listed and over-the-counter (OTC) equity securities. Learn more about equities and OTC equities trading.

FINRA Rule 4560 requires FINRA member firms to report their short positions in all OTC equity securities to FINRA. OTC equity / other OTC short interest is available for view by issue, or by downloadable pipe-delimited text file containing all OTC equity / other OTC securities reported with a short position. Data is available online for one rolling year based on the settlement date provided in the Short Interest Reporting Deadlines, and archived data is available via download.
