A short squeeze occurs in the financial markets when there is a rapid increase in the price of a stock or other asset that has been heavily shorted. Short selling is a strategy where investors borrow shares of a stock and sell them with the expectation that the price will fall, allowing them to buy the shares back at a lower price and profit from the difference.

In a short squeeze, the opposite happens. If the price of the heavily shorted asset starts to rise, short sellers may face increasing losses. To limit their losses, short sellers may need to buy back the borrowed shares to cover their positions. However, as more short sellers rush to buy the shares, this increased demand can further drive up the price.

This creates a feedback loop where rising prices force more short sellers to cover their positions, leading to even higher prices. It’s called a “squeeze” because short sellers find themselves squeezed between increasing losses and the pressure to buy back shares at higher prices.

Key elements of a short squeeze:

  1. High Short Interest: A significant portion of the stock’s float (the total number of shares available for trading) is sold short.
  2. Positive Catalysts: Unexpected positive news or events surrounding the stock can trigger a surge in buying interest.
  3. Forced Covering: As the stock price rises, short sellers face increasing losses, and to limit those losses, they buy back shares, contributing to the upward momentum.
  4. Feedback Loop: The buying pressure from short sellers covering their positions fuels further price increases, creating a self-reinforcing cycle.

Short squeezes can lead to sharp and volatile price movements, catching both short sellers and other market participants off guard. Traders and investors closely monitor short interest levels and market dynamics to identify potential short squeeze opportunities or risks.
