The regulation of insider trading prohibits insiders from using inside information in securities transactions, and the central goal of the regulator is to preclude non-public information from circulating in the stock markets. The goal of legislation against insider trading is the same as that of legislation against market manipulation, making certain the integrity of EU financial markets and so boosting investor confidence in those markets. Market manipulation and insider trading are interrelated and based on circulation of information, and so cyberspace & e-logistics of information could be the key to neutralizing people from taking advantage of their privilege to govern information within a company. Insider trading moves prices because outsiders decode information from the trade itself. Insider trading increases capital costs for the reason that insider trading raises the cost to market-makers in a company’s securities relative to other companies, decreasing the anticipated return to uninformed shareholders. Corporate insiders are clearly informed about their own firms. The insiders’ outperformance derives from either their analytical skill or the handling of superior information about their companies when trading. Insiders benefit from unexpected losses on top of gains and so have a perverse incentive to trigger the company to under-perform if insider trading is permitted. Securities are vital, not only as investment vehicles, but also as devices for corporate control. A peaceful European Revolution should bring forward European nations and the USE/European Federation, which can deal with insider trading, criminal law, and other political/economical components in a harmonious way while avoiding any conflict among the various jurisdictions taking place in the present EU.
