The Situation

It’s easier than ever for stock manipulation to occur.

Much has changed in the past five years alone to contribute to this, most notably the elimination of the uptick rule and the rise of hedge funds, both of which have played key roles in the proliferation of short selling.

The cumulative result of these conditions is increased market volatility, making small-to-mid cap companies more vulnerable than ever to the manipulation of their share value. The effects are far-reaching and can have a negative domino effect on a company’s stock.

In such a climate, the services Equity Insight provides are especially vital.
