Game Over? Gamestop Slides After Short Interest Said To Collapse

Sharing is Caring!

After starting the day solidly in the green, Gamestop – along with other most shorted names – traded as high as $383 after Robinhood eased its trading limits over the weekend, which saw the brokerage effectively halt trading in as many as 50 stocks.

However, the early euphoria did not last long, and moments ago the stock tumbled as much as 34%, before getting halted after triggering a circuit breaker.

While there was no actual news, traders were scrambling to figure out if there was a catalyst to the move.

There was: according to an update from trading analytics firm S3 Partners (published at 1023am ET), after holding steady in the triple digits, the company’s short interest plunged, with the company’s founder Ihor Dusaniwsky reporting that according to the firm’s analytics as of this morning, “short interest is just $8.82BN or 27.12M shares shorted” as the shares short have declined by a whopping 35.2 million shares over the last week.
