When ELN shares get halted, there are going to be some serious sweating going on among the shorts. Bashers will be powerless. They can post all htey want, but who will care. For the longs, this is no big deal. What hasn't already been thrown at the longs? A stock that goes from 27 to 3! Then back to 16! This is all in a days work. ELN holders are used to all of this stuff.
But for the shorts, a stock halt is serious danger. There is no exit. There is no way I would be anywhere close to holding a short position right now.
