This website is designed and maintained by Data Explorers to provide insight into market behaviour through the Securities Lending market. Our objective is to encourage a broader understanding and debate about the impact of the short-selling. We believe that stock lending levels can act as a proxy for short interest but we do not offer investment advice or research. We make observations about trends in the market for the reader to interpret as they see fit. The views expressed are those of the Editor and not Data Explorers. louboutin pas cher http://www.tradoubler.fr/
