AMC’s volume skyrockets past 200 million
Last week AMC’s trading volume reached 130 million, a milestone we have not seen since last year prior to its runup to $72 per share.
Today AMC’s volume skyrocketed past 200 million.
A clear sign the stock is getting ready for higher price action.
In the midst of these runups, short sellers have lost more than $750 million dollars in the past two weeks alone.
And this is only so far as momentum will keep driving AMC forward.
AMC short sellers are about to experience greater losses if they continue to hold their positions.
History is about to repeat itself as AMC aims at reaching a new all-time high for 2022.
The question is how high will AMC go?
Has AMC’s short squeeze started?
AMC’s current reported short interest is 20.90%.
We will notice short covering in the market when this number figure begins to decline.
When AMC surged to $72 per share last year, we saw the short interest drop from 20% to 14%.
AMC short sellers jumped in again and the short interest has risen to almost 21% since.
As of today, AMC’s short interest has not changed.
We should have a better understanding whether AMC’s runup has been mere momentum from retail, or short covering in the next day or two.

How soon will AMC squeeze?
AMC had two main runup points.
One towards the end of January and another in May of 2021.
While both events managed to squeeze a few shorts from their positions, hedge funds continued to overleverage their positions.
Shareholders have held their stock to inevitably send AMC’s share price to unprecedented numbers by squeezing hedge funds out.
Financial institutions around the globe are facing liquidity issues.
These liquidity issues are forcing institutions to keep up with their margin requirements as margin calls are triggered.
While the market takes a dump due to hedge fund selloffs, heavily shorted stocks such as AMC and GameStop will trigger short sellers to close their positions.
AMC’s trading volume surpassed 200 million on Monday and the probability of it increasing in the coming days is very high.
At some point, shorting the stock won’t be worth if for short sellers, especially as the cost to borrow the stock soars.
AMC has increased its retail shareholder base from 3 million to 4 million in the past year.
More investors have uncovered the short interest data that shows AMC has the perfect short squeeze setup.
Whether MOASS is just around the corner, or this is merely another massive price runup, there’s no denying significant gains are on their way.
