Short Selling Data

It took me more than 2 hours to complete this short selling downloader. This item is more complex than the previous ones (NYSE Arca - Daily short sale data, NASDAQ and Boston stock exchanges - Daily short sale data, Short Selling historical data, NSX - Daily short selling data) because it calculates the sum of all short selling data for four different facilities.
Because the data is retrieved from four different URLs, I have used the 'Global' class to store the data temporarily and I created a Post-Script that has more than 20 lines of code.

The facilities are: NASDAQ, NYSE (New York Stock Exchange), ADF and ORF. The data comes directly from the FINRA website (http://www.finra.org).
The FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc.) is a successor to the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD). It is a self-regulatory organization and it is not part of the US government.

Short selling data or volume is stored in the following database 'short_selling' and besides the 'Date', 'Short' (total short selling volume) and 'Total' (total traded volume), it has a forth column, which is the 'Short Ratio' (Short volume for a particular date divided by the total volume for that date and then multiplied by 100).

If you want to get short selling data for unknown symbols, you can check the 'Automatically add new symbols' checkbox. To do so, select your short selling item then click on 'Update'. Click on 'Parser', select a URL, click on 'OK" and then wait few seconds so the software downloads sample data. Finally click on 'Next' and check the 'Automatically add new symbols' checkbox.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
