Short Squeeze Bloodbath To Start The Week

Tyler Durden's picture

After "most shorted" stocks had their best (i.e. worst or biggest loss) week in 2 years last week, it was perhaps not entirely surprising that 'they' would smash VIX and JPY to manufacture a short squeeze bloodbath this morning at the open...

 

Last week saw "most shorted" stocks drop almost 6% - the biggest loss in 2 years...

 

So hardly a huge surprise that today would start with a short squeeze bloodbath...

 

Of course, we've seen this kind of short-term stop-running squeeze before...
