FT.com to include short selling activity from Data Explorers


Data Explorers (DX) will now be providing data to FT.com which will allow monitoring of short positions alongside the market data on the Company pages and Stock Screener.

Data Explorers is the leading global provider of securities financing data and daily long and short institutional fund flow insight. The company maintains a comprehensive dataset of stock loan data, providing an accurate proxy for the breadth and depth of global market activity. Institutional money managers use DX data to gauge equity market sentiment across stocks, sectors and asset classes.

Sourced from banks, agent lenders and asset owners, Data Explorers securities financing information is timely, daily and global.

Donal Smith, CEO, Data Explorers commented: "The stock loan data provided to us on a daily basis by over 20,000 institutional funds provides the best proxy for global short selling activity.
