What is a Short Squeeze and How Can You Profit From It? ★ SUMMARY ★ You may have heard of the term "short squeeze" in the past - but didn't know what it meant. I'm here to tell you what it is and how you can capitalize and profit from a short squeeze. What is a short squeeze? There are two players in the market. There are the "longs" and the "shorts" which are equivalent to buyers and sellers. Buyers are looking for the stock to head higher while Sellers are looking for the stock to head lower. Sellers typical are borrowing shares from their brokers - then will look for the stock to head lower - they'll purchase it back at a lower price and pocket the difference. These are called "short sellers."

Mark Robertson (5 months ago)
In this video are we referring to sellers/shorts as options trades only? Like, if they borrowed shares from their brokers to buy back at a lower price they'd only lose money if they did it via a short options trade?

Rahul Kiron (1 year ago)
awesomely explained sir! But why should the sellers sell their stocks when the price moves up? Why cant they just hold it?
Chuck A (8 months ago)
Rahul Kiron I agree. The "squeeze" in a short squeeze results from a lack of sellers. Value buyers and unlevered buyers have scooped up so much of the free float at unsustainable low prices that shorts are suddenly forced to cover at significantly higher prices as there are no sellers at the lower prices.
Rahul Kiron (1 year ago)
Sasha Evdakov yes I understood the concept now. Can u make a detailed video on futures n options. And also on how to select a stock based on its PE ratio pls

So, in a short sqeeze, Do you buy long when the price is going up or do you wait for resistance and short sell the stocm when coming back down?
Danny Beringer (3 years ago)
Is there any way to know if a stock is being heavily shorted, or if there is an impending short squeeze.

Ashton Ball (3 years ago)
Is there an indicator on a chart to tell when someone is buying shares and when a short is repaying their borrowed stock? For instance, a daily chart shows red/green bars in the volume... is there an indicator to tell what's actually going on?
ls92101 (3 years ago)
+Ashton Ball most tools will have a short indicator. If you are using TC2000 just select the library and then short Interest, it wont have the short float percentage though so if that is what you are looking for but you can find that on finviz.
