It found that total open positions against the market rose to $1.02 trillion! It's probably no surprise to anyone that these bets are not successful so far. The data from S3 bears this out as they report that investors have lost over $100 billion this way this year.

That's exactly why I'm not bitter. :D

Everybody shorts, so 📈😁

Those shorts are just insidious...

That's why I'm not bitter, I'd probably lose my own pants in there. I don't see how anyone can be successful at it long term. btw is there anyone like that at all?

Those are terrible numbers... and that's why I'm still a little afraid of shorting :)

Good thing I'm not bitter 😀 I'm also waiting for the fall to come and still nothing.
