A short squeeze refers to a phenomenon in which short sellers, who expected a stock price decline, fail to overcome the pressure of a stock price increase and quickly repurchase stocks. In this case, the stock price tends to rise sharply.At the beginning of the year, individual investors bought EcoPro and led the rise, but as foreign investors were pointed out as the main cause of the price surge, the argument that the surge was caused by a short squeeze is supported. As of the 25th, the cumulative amount of EcoPro stocks bought by foreigners this month amounted to 1.809 trillion won. Expectations for incorporation intothe Morgan Stanley Capital International (
MSCI ) index are also cited as factors contributing to the rise in the stock price.
MSCI plans to transfer stocks through regular changes in August. In general, it is interpreted that as the passive demand of foreigners increases when it is included in the index, the expectation accordingly has worked. Since the beginning of this year, ‘rechargeable battery ants’ have shown great interest inEcopro, rising from 100,000 won in January to 700,000 won in April. Since then, the stock price, which had hovered between 600,000 and 700,000 won until last month, surpassed the 900,000 won mark with a 20% surge on the 3rd, and touched 1 million won for the first time during the market on the 10th.
