A couple of days ago I posted a link to an analysis which alleged that very strong short selling attacks on a company had been reversed by the perpetrators being able to buy large share volumes off market from apparently related entities.
Many posters seemed to think this was just part of the rough and tumble of the market and that smart investors would wise up quickly. In essence - investor beware.
So my question now is :
"What behaviors by brokers, directors, CEO's whoever do you think should be regarded as illegal, how should they be monitored and what do you think should happen to the perps ? " And perhaps a few examples .
I'm just interested to see how far a free market and individual creativity should operate in your eyes versus protection for shareholders and other parties.
