In line with the current theme, I have collected some data from March onwards. Aim is maybe to see some derivations or correlations, for example after quarterly numbers, insider buying or selling and announcements. I'll update the numbers as soon as possible, but don't nail me if it doesn't happen daily. If anyone has suggestions for improvements or enhancements, you are welcome..

I have added another number to the table which represents the daily net closed short sales. This is the difference between the open short sales to the previous day and the new short sales opened on the current day. I hope it doesn't get too confusing, but this number could get quite interesting if viewed on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the net closed short sales can also only be determined with a 4-day delay.

I tried to capture the algorithm problem in a simplified way. By multiplying the daily total volume by the Volumen Weighted Average Price (VWAP) of the day and then dividing by the daily total trades, I get a number I call the algo factor. Basically, it's nothing more than the average purchase or sales revenue per trade for the day. I take a hundredth of that to get a reasonable number. The lower this number is, the higher the probability that it is an algorythmic controlled trading day. The higher, the more likely it is institutional or ETF buyings. I think it's worth a look.
