Market Conduct

This Market Conduct course explains the main types of market manipulation that can occur in stock markets around the globe and helps employees understand their responsibilities regarding prohibited market behavior.

Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 30 minutes


The efficient and ethical functioning of markets is fundamental to everyone's long-term success. Markets that are corrupt risk damaging users, investors and communities, which results in investors becoming reluctant to commit their capital in corrupt markets. This, in turn, has a significant impact on the cost of capital and the growth potential of the economy.

For these reasons and others, governments around the globe have taken measures to prohibit improper market conduct, such as insider dealing and market manipulation. Some examples of legislation that have been enacted include the United States’ Commodity Exchange Act (CEA), the UK’s Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and Australia’s Corporations Act 2001. Violations of these market conduct laws can result in serious penalties, including fines, imprisonment and expulsion from the industry.

The topics covered in the course include:

  • Law and regulation
  • Insider dealing
  • Market manipulation
  • Reporting suspicions
