    Hi,
    Would there be a way to add “days to cover” info (short interest ratio) in a watchlist (without having to have Bloomberg)?
    Thank you.

    Hi Julius,

    To build that we would need to divide the Short Interest by the average daily volume. A couple years ago we had the Short Interest numbers but the exchanges know that those figures are really important and started charging prices which we could not justify. If you ever do find another source for it, please let me know.

    All the best

    Is the number of securities you need this for limited?

    You could put the values in an excel spreadsheet and then access them that way (you will need to check with support if you have EDFs as part of your subscription).

    Here is an article which explains the import process.

    Hi Jonathan,

    If you look on that site you will see the following tweets

    This is data that the exchanges are hesitant to let anyone use. If you can find a source of data who we can legally work with, I’m, happy to explore it.

    All the best
