Short volume was 22% of the total volume traded although it's more like 44% since Volume is defined as, “the number of shares or contracts traded in a security or an entire market during a given period of time.” What this means is that each time a person sells or buys shares of a stock, that is considered volume.
Trader 1 Buys 100 shares of stockTrader 2 Buy 500 shares of stockTrader 3 Sells 1000 shares of stockTotal volume is then 1,600 shares for this sequence. Again volume increases regardless if it is a buy or sell order.
So you have your local shorts to thank for the price languishing in the low ones. But another way to look at it is do what Seth did. Buy. He knows what is coming.
