    I had a reply on Twitter today from @optuma that Short Interest % data is something that is available through Quandl.

    I use IQ Feed for my data, and I think many of us who use Optuma would undoubtedly appreciate having access to Short Interest % data as currently I have to go through Koyfin to get this and it would make sense to have it within Optuma in the spirit of having everything under 1 roof.

    Is this possible?

    Hi Sam,

    Everything is technically possible but it comes down to whether we can make the business case for it. In this case, Short Interest data is incredibly expensive.
    I’m always happy to invest in new services but I have to know that there is ROI and that I am not putting the financial stability of the company at risk.

    There is a major data overhaul which we are starting. It will take a few months and we are moving to more reliable suppliers for some data-sets. I’ll ask the questions of the new suppliers but can not promise anything at this stage.

    All the best
