That is the biggest 3-day short-squeeze since the March/April lows last year.

And the Top 10 "most shorted" Russell 3000 stocks have literally exploded since we noted them on Friday…

Of course, GME was among the meltiest-uppiest of the melt-ups… after Chamath and the Winklevi tweeted supportive comments for the Reddit/Robinhood crowd's campaign against the shorts…

The $200 GME Calls came into play today as the gamma-vortex trade continues (65583 Friday calls vs 258 puts)…

Pitney Bowes (with a short interest nest 8 year highs) exploded higher after some comments on Seeking Alpha (also ramped thanks to call-buying debacle)…

"Let's play a game of Global Thermonuclear meltup…"

Growth extended its rebound off critical supports relative to Value…

Overall, Nasdaq outperformed as Small Caps suffered (The Dow clung to unch)… (NOTE the late weakness overall as we suspect forces sales/liquidations of longs to fund margin calls on shorts)

Staples Outperformed as Energy stocks tumbled from a ripping-higher open…

After yesterday's gains, bonds were largely flat today…

U.S. stocks are moving ever less in tandem, to a degree that has preceded equity market selloffs in recent years. As Bloomberg reports, the S&P 500 Index’s three-month realized correlation — a gauge of how closely the top stocks in the benchmark move relative to each other — has fallen to 0.16.

A maximum possible correlation of 1 would signify all the shares are moving in lockstep. Behind much of the decline is a combination of the reflation trade stock rotation and equity moves due to earnings season. But low correlations are also seen as a sign of weakening market breadth and have occurred before recent stock market corrections, including “Volmageddon” in early 2018.
