Naked shorting is counterfeiting. Period.

Agree totally with the 'naked' shorting. It's easy money for lazy funds and brokers to lend shares and the affect compounds along with any 'normal' short positions, stop loss triggers and any emotional loss takers. There is ample liquidity in the market anyway and there are other market option to take up a short position in stocks as you discuss. No question as we get close to a final answer, the shorters could be setting up for major losses (or gains if the hopefully unlikely occurs). GLTA

“arzneggs” German for -ignorant, progress delaying regulator-

I don’t know what “arzneggs” are, maybe it’s untranslatable, but it seems we are in the arznegg business.

Sorry i dont have access currently to unmasked data - as there is 5% short it will all be Insto that have access to large nominee pools of stock they can borrow. Generally the only naked shorting in Australia is from market makers hedging risk, but this still requires stock lending to cover post transaction.
I generally speaking have a problem with Nominee groups contributing to activity that is counter to the interest of the owners of companies. The benefits of liquidity and reduced volatility don't appear to be realized - shorts tend to increase the magnitude of volatility in both directions. The only shorting i would like to see is by listed Exchange Traded Options, warrants and futures by market makers of those products.

Mainly because stock markets in general have been taking a beating. Clinuvel was one of the best performing stocks in the last year. Thus, I believe traders viewed it as extra high risk in these uncertain times (that which rises high must fall far).

The fall has largely happened. The stock is down over 30%. It likely will get caught up in the global stock sell off a bit more, but I think largely the bulk of the fall is in. There is, what, 7 weeks until the approval date? Assuming the short is done by various people at least some of them will want to take some risk off the table before approval date. Otherwise, they are at pretty big risk, especially the ones that are shorting even at today's low price.

So, my guess is within the next week or so that shorting will plateau. And, within a few weeks the shorts will begin to unwind and reverse. I have to imagine at least half will close prior to approval with the other half being closed in the approval pump.

Fine summary.
Bit outdated about asx200 inclusion though. Asx200 inclusion was already done and it's still mentioned as chance in the swot analysis.

@polyphemus - Is it possible to see which broker(s) have been selling down while the short interest has been increasing of late?

Thanks in advance.
