Short squeeze

A situation in which the price of the stock rises and investors who sold 

Short

 rush to 

Buy

 it to 

Cover

 their short 

Position

 and cut their losses. As the price of the stock increases, more 

Short

 sellers feel compelled to 

Cover

 their positions. More common than the opposite, 

Long

 squeeze.
