MongoDB, Inc is a software-infrastructure business with stocks listed in the US. MongoDB shares (MDB) are listed on the NASDAQ and all prices are listed in US Dollars. Here's how to invest if you're based in Australia.

How to buy shares in MongoDB

  1. Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a US company from Australia you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to US stock markets. If you're just starting out, look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, like your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for MongoDB. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: MDB. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment against your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until MongoDB reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. Weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of MongoDB, depending on your broker.
  6. Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of MongoDB. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights on directors and management that can affect your stock.

Shorting MongoDB shares

There are currently 6.2 million MongoDB shares held short by investors – that's known as MongoDB's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% up from 5.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MongoDB shares can be evaluated.

MongoDB's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MongoDB's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MongoDB shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MongoDB shares traded daily (recently around 693983.93258427). MongoDB's SIR currently stands at 8.9. In other words for every 100,000 MongoDB shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8900 shares are currently held short.

However MongoDB's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MongoDB shares, or, against the total number of tradable MongoDB shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MongoDB's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MongoDB shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1371% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MongoDB shares, roughly 137 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against MongoDB.

MongoDB share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, MongoDB's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$93.81 up to US$428.965. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MDB.US volatility(beta: 0.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while MongoDB's is 0.8365. This would suggest that MongoDB's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
