Report This Chart Shows Why You Should Be Very Afraid of the Stock Market - 12/3/21 in The Daily Stool - Stock Market Message Board Posted Saturday at 12:10 AM The fewer shorts the better. What shorts don't realise is that they themselves are a contrary indicator. To make money as a short U have to be right at the right time.....not easy at all. Most invariably short too early. And get burned....the story through most of 2021. And get short squeezed out. Look at wirecard or gaotu. It's the latter shorts that make the easy money. They wait for the technicals and phsycologicals to align with the fundamentals. It's not enough for the market to know a stock is a scam/failing business model it has to accept it as being a scam/failing business model. The space between knowing and acceptance is the danger space for short sellers. Knowing is not acceptance. If you want to make money as a short seller you need to look around and find your the only one at the party.
