Suppose there is an enterprise named ABC which is a listed company. Due to some discrepancies, the regulator imposes a ban on the trading of company for few days in the market. The shareholders would panic, now as soon as the ban would go everyone would want to sell the share but no one would be buying it. This means they are stuck with these shares which are losing value every minute they are not sold.
