Short selling is a technique used to profit from a fall in the price of a stock. It is a method where you sell first, and buy later - if the price of the stock drops then you are selling for a higher price than you are buying resulting in a profit. Even if you do not participate in short selling yourself, knowing which ASX stocks are being shorted by others can provide some useful insights into the opinions of the market.


This site provides data on stocks that are being shorted on the ASX. This data is sourced from ASIC, and is the aggregate short positions for each stock. The higher the percentage, the more of that stock is shorted. It is important to note that ASIC releases this information with a delay of 4 trading days (T+4), and the data on this site is updated accordingly. This site should not be considered investment advice, nor is the information guaranteed to be accurate. Please read our notes on data and our disclaimer.

On this site we have a list of the top 100 shorted stocks, some information on which stocks are having the greatest changes in activity on their short positions, and some interesting graphs on stock shorting covering the wider market and some key sectors. Also you can search for a particular stock using its stock code from the search box in the upper right corner of this page.

Additionally we aim to provide some interesting charts and stats on individual stocks that are not freely available elsewhere. The first example of this are the new year-on-year seasonality charts available from the stock stats page.
