Any questions? The Securities and Exchange Commission is a government entity created to regulate the trading in securities such as stocks and bonds. The "SEC" as it is known was created after the Great Depression to protect the public by regulating the trading in stocks and bonds. The goal is for the average investor, Joe Q, to have access to the same information as the executives who oversee or work for the public companies that are traded on the exchanges. All public companies must file their results with the SEC on a periodic basis, usually each quarter so that the public has access to the same information as the company executives. Also, the SEC makes sure that the "insiders" who work for the companies, do not have an unfair advantage to invest or trade in securities based on "inside"...
Virtual Currencies: The Oversight Role of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission This is a video I believe anyone investing or getting into cryptocurrency should watch, understand, and learn.

I wanted to know if a purchase of a stock i wanted to make would violate insider trading laws. more than a month ago I met with a company who wanted to invest in one of my portfolio companies. We never discussed their business. Only ours. But I liked the company. The next week their stock fell significantly after their earnings report. It was now at a price I wanted to buy it.The only non public information i have is that they have an interest in one of my companies. Would it be insider trading if i bought the stock ? I called the SEC to see if I could get this question answered. What I found shocked even me.
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “SEC - Security & Exchange Commission - USA” The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 governs the way in which the nation's securities markets and its brokers and dealers operate. When the stock market crashed in October 1929, so did public confidence in the U.S. markets. Congress held hearings to identify the problems and search for solutions. Based on its findings, Congress – in the peak year of the Depression – passed the Securities Act of 1933. The following year, it passed the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which created the SEC. The SEC has four major divisions. 1. The Division of Corporation Finance ensures corporate disclosure of important information to the investing publi...
Prior to the enactment of the federal securities laws and the creation of the SEC, there existed so-called blue sky laws. They were enacted and enforced at the state level, and regulated the offering and sale of securities to protect the public from fraud. Though the specific provisions of these laws varied among states, they all required the registration of all securities offerings and sales, as well as of every U.S. stockbroker and brokerage firm. However, these blue sky laws were generally found to be ineffective. For example, the Investment Bankers Association told its members as early as 1915 that they could "ignore" blue sky laws by making securities offerings across state lines through the mail. After holding hearings on abuses on interstate frauds (commonly known as the Peco...
