What is short interest in stocks?

Short interest in stocks is the number of shares that have been sold short by traders and these positions have not been covered or closed out. When a stock has a high short interest, it means there are a high amount of traders who are betting the stock would go down from its current price.

Sometimes, when a stock goes up too fast in a very short period of time, it attracts a large amount of short interest. 

What is a short squeeze?

Short squeeze occurs when stocks jump abruptly higher and force traders who are shorting the stock to cover their short positions. When these short traders have to buy the stock to cover their positions, which in term drives the stock prices even higher.

Tesla was a highly shorted stock in 2020. When its stock price rose tenfold, short traders got crushed because of short squeezes.

GME, EXPR, KOSS were some of the wild stocks that had gone up recently partly because of a short squeeze. GameStop was a highly shorted stock by many hedge funds. Some retail traders on WallStreetBets or WSB, which is a subreddit on the Reddit forum, try to take on these hedge funds by taking opposite positions.

In other words, retail traders were buying GME in waves, and that caused spikes in its stock price and short squeezes from hedge funds who need to cover their short positions.
