Manipulative Trading refers to illegal or unethical practices in financial markets aimed at artificially influencing the price of securities, commodities, or derivatives to benefit the trader or group of traders involved. This can include actions such as spreading false rumors, engaging in wash trading (where a trader simultaneously buys and sells the same financial instrument to create misleading activity), spoofing (placing orders with the intent to cancel them before execution to manipulate prices), or cornering the market (accumulating a dominant position in a particular asset to control its price). Manipulative trading distorts market efficiency, undermines fair competition, and can harm investors and market integrity. Regulatory bodies like the SEC and CFTC enforce rules and laws to detect and prosecute manipulative trading practices, aiming to maintain transparency, fairness, and trust in financial markets.
