Short Ratio is typically used by traders and speculators to identify trends in current market sentiment for a particular equity instrument. In its simple terms this ratio shows how many days it will take all current short sellers to cover their positions if the price of a stock begins to rise.
The higher the Short Ratio, the longer it would take to buy back the borrowed shares. In theory, the more short positions are currently outstanding, the faster it will be to cover shorted positions.
