WL has ton of fundamental data, but I could not find Short Interest for equities. Please point me to it, if it is available.

It's not part of the Fidelity fundamental data - all available fields are shown in the Fundamental dialog.

does fidelity have data for call-put ratio (symbol $cpc in stockcharts.com)? I have tried CPC, .CPC, $CPC, ^CPC, and PCRATIO.Z - none worked. thanks

I can't speak for its availability in Fidelity data but it's pretty easy to fetch and chart.
For a complete illustration, see WealthScript Programming Guide: Techniques > Access ad-hoc Data from the Internet or our Wiki Knowledge Base.

By the way, obtaining short interest for free is not an off-hand task... At most you'll get one year for NASDAQ and OTC stocks. Beyond that be ready to shell out something like $400 /mo. If the data was free, it could have been a pretty easy task to build a drag&drop indicator that would query the Internet for short interest of the charted stock.
