Market Manipulation

Market manipulation is a type of securities fraud that involves schemes designed to deceive investors by controlling or artificially affecting the market for a security. There are multiple schemes that manipulators employ to move the price of a stock. In addition to spreading false or misleading information about a security, schemes include improperly limiting the number of publicly-available shares, or rigging quotes, prices or trades to create a false or deceptive picture of the demand for a security. If you have evidence of anyone engaging in market manipulation, you may have a whistleblower claim and should speak to a qualified whistleblower attorney.
