Each line (link) is for a specific period. April 4 is for the short sales from Mar 16th to end of month. Mar 26 (which seems late to me would cover the period from Mar 1 to 15th.

So you can get all kinds of useless (lol) info from this. eg. new shorting decreased in the last 1/2 of the month. I would assume the reason is that the SP was down. Fewer starting/adding to a short position. Stats have nothing to do with the total accumulated number of shares shorted, except that they affect the totals.
