OTC equity short interest is available for view by issue, or by downloadable pipe-delimited text file containing all OTC equity securities reported with a short position.

FINRA Rule 4560 requires FINRA member firms to report their short positions in all over-the-counter (“OTC”) equity securities to FINRA. The mid-month short interest report is based on short positions held by members on the settlement date of the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or another non-settlement date, the designated settlement date will be the previous business day on which transactions settled. The end-of-month short interest report is based on short positions held on the last business day of the month on which transactions settle. Once the short position reports are received, the short interest data is compiled for each OTC equity security and provided for publication on the 8th business day after the reporting settlement date. Please refer to the Short Interest Reporting Deadlines for the current reporting schedule. Additional information relating to short interest reporting can be found here.
