There seems to be a large discrepancy between the figures on the ASIC website (http://asic.gov.au/regulatory-resources/markets/short-selling/short-position-rep orts-table/) and the ASX website (http://www.asx.com.au/data/shortsell.txt)

For example the ASIC table, undated but labeled as "Latest daily" gives a short position for Vocus (VOC) as 9.47% !
But the ASX shortsell data dated 01/12/15 gives the figure as 0.14 % !
The VOC chart does not seem to indicate anything amiss so I'm wondering why there is such a huge difference.
Does anyone on this forum know what's going on here?
Does anyone have an accurate & up to date source of short information?

Found the date for the ASIC figures, it's about a week out of date!

After spending too long thinking about doing something about the collection of short sales data, I've finally got started in the last few days.

Rather than re-invent the wheel I thought I'd ask the forum if anyone is already doing something similar and if so would they be interested in a collaboration with a view to sharing ideas/data and creating something that may give some useful market insights.
Please reply here or feel free to PM me if you are already doing something along these lines.

I found this recently & thought others might like it too

Selling Short

Oh, roller-skating is exciting,
and so are volcanoes too.
And a good old-fashioned blizzard
will put you in a stew;
But of all exciting pastimes,
or any kind of sport,
There's nothing quite so thrilling
As the game of Selling Short.

It isn't merely selling
something which you have got;
It's much more complicated -
You sell what you have NOT.
And the thing that makes exciting
(if you don't believe me - try it)
Is that after you have sold it
You have simply GOT TO buy it.

And so, when you go to buy it,
If you have to pay the price
Higher than what you sold it for -
That isn't quite so nice.
And the market is most disobliging -
Though no one seems to know why -
For it's always down when you HAVE to sell,
And it's up when you HAVE to buy.

Hi STT

Further to your enquiry regarding Short Sales data (17/4) I can tell that I don't use this data - my priorities are elsewhere.

I see it much like the "US Commitment Of Traders" data: already out of date when one receives it and markets are commonly irrational so how can you determine the trigger off such data (I would rather get triggers from the chart. Yes Short data can provide one with a heads up but I rather focus in other charting elements)

Happy trading DYOR

Hi Try,
As I work mainly in the weekly time frame, the 2 day delay doesn't concern me too much.
I've collected odd days of data going back to Feb 2015 & I'm finding the information very interesting.
I think it may be useful as a Market switch to complement the other ones I use.
For example when the Aussie Market tanked in January this year the average % short sold was 25 times greater than it is now.

Please ignore the last line & figures in my previous post, the data came from different sources & there are large discrepancies between the two.
I'll just stick to using the data released by the ASX in future, mix n' match doesn't work!

Well I've finally cracked it, I eventually discovered that one data source is for the cumulative percentage of outstanding shorts for each stock, and the other is for shorts for that day only, rather than cumulative outstanding.
