Thought I’d contribute my two cents about today’s rally. The reason the market spiked had nothing to do with fundamentals. The shorts got squeezed.

What would happen if LOTS of people were short a particular stock and they ALL decide to close out their position at the same time? All those people would have to buy shares in order to exit their short positions. And lots of buyers buying simultaneously will drive a stock up.
