Two big extended-hours trades sunk the closing price of ERHC Energy Tuesday afternoon, but the Bid and Ask recovered shortly afterwards to finish in EH at $0.34 x $0.35.

The two trades were identically conformed in multiple to those after Friday's close, when a total of two purchases of 262,107 changed the closing price; the first at $0.298 brought it down below $0.30, the regular-hours close, and the second improved on the regular close to $0.3045, slightly up.
