Ross Parsons Law and Business Seminar Series: Market Manipulation

20 February 2014

This event is FULLY BOOKED.


Market manipulation has become a regulatory focal point, particularly since the global financial crisis. This seminar, which is convened jointly by Sydney Law School and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, will discuss central issues and recent developments in the area of market manipulation. Specific matters that will be addressed in the seminar include: -

  • How is market manipulation defined under the Corporations Act?;
  • What are the typical techniques through which market manipulation occurs?
  • What incentives drive market manipulation?;
  • What is the impact of contemporary developments in market structure, such as the rise of algorithmic and high-frequency, trading, on traditional notions of market manipulation?

The seminar will also examine recent case law in the area, including the Australian High Court decision in Director of Public Prosecutions (Cth) v JM [2013] HCA 30 (27 June 2013).
