The feed can also be compared over time to examine changes in investor sentiment and investors can then decide when to buy or sell a specific security. Jonathan Bloch, CEO of Exchange Data International explains: “Given the current volatility of the market, investors should consider all sentiment, both negative and positive. EDI makes available information released by exchanges and regulators on a worldwide basis.”
EDI actively covers 21 markets, including the UK, Hong Kong, Germany and 14 countries that permit short selling but currently have no activity, including markets such as the Czech Republic, Estonia, India, Korea, Latvia, and Lithuania.
Data includes notifications of restrictions to the short selling regulations as provided by the market regulator and/or exchange. For EU countries, additional restrictions may apply, and EDI includes a list of those shares as published on the ESMA registers.
