The theory that a large interest in short positions in stocks will precede a rise in the market prices, because the short positions must eventually be covered by purchases of the stock.

In technical analysis, a theory stating that when an exceptionally large number of investors have a short position on a security, the price of that security will soon rise because those same investors will need to buy to close their positions.
