Federal Securities Fraud and Insider Trading
Insider trading is when “inside” information is used to make gains or avoid losses, before the information has gone public. This is considered illegal and securities fraud. The stock exchange is regulated mainly by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. If there is suspicious activity noticed by the SROs (Self-Regulatory Organizations), the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) is notified and an investigation can be pursued. It is to your advantage if you believe you are being monitored or investigated for insider training to always error on the side of caution and seek legal counsel immediately. Early intervention can help mitigate penalties and even get charges possibly dropped.
