Market Abuse and Trade Surveillance*

This course looks in detail at some recent surveillance case studies and investigates what happened, how it was detected and the consequences. These case studies provide the motivation to understand methods of surveillance and the relevant regulations.

The first day of the programme begins with a summary of different types of surveillance and outlines various forms of market manipulation. We then examine surveillance regulation with examples from recent years. Case studies look at examples of front-running and spoofing as well as attempted manipulation and an example that was ruled not to be market manipulation in court.

Day two examines methods of detecting all forms of market manipulation before a detailed discussion on benchmark manipulation. We finish with a look at more advanced forms of surveillance and conclude by describing several further examples of market abuse.
