What role should the markets play in the regulation of securities? The short answer is: they should be free to play and if they do play, you should have the freedom to invest in other products to meet your needs. But it is not always easy for markets to function efficiently, and they need the right kind of regulatory support to get that kind of support.
In the U.S., this is more complicated than in many other countries because the financial institutions with the large size and the ability to set the agenda are not limited to banks or hedge funds or investment banks; it is almost everyone with an interest in the market, including traders, analysts, investors, bankers, brokers, and so on. So in addition to regulations of the securities markets, market participants in this space need to face the other regulatory and professional constraints of the markets themselves.
The first, and most important one, is the need to understand and keep track of how the markets have been regulated.
The U.S. SEC sets the regulations for hedge funds, private equity funds, and other equity funds that participate in this market. It also oversees hedge funds.
The SEC has set up rules to prevent insider trading and to establish rules and rules to prevent illegal speculation in the securities markets.
But those rules are not effective at all. Because hedge funds are often not publicly traded, they do not meet the definition of stock exchange “stock.” That is, unless you understand that stock exchanges are traded on “tally sheets” and that the “tally sheets” are, for this market, public documents. Stock exchange “tally sheets” are filed by the various companies on either the NYSE or NASDAQ, and they give you the name of the company and its share price as of any particular time. The SEC has established rules to limit or prohibit short selling in these firms, which requires the trading firm to tell its customers on its own website, or by other means, when the price of the company’s stock is scheduled to change by 5%. And many hedge funds do not share this data with investors. By contrast, if you go to the Nasdaq stock system and buy a stock, you see the price by the ticker, and you can see your stock’s ticker symbol to do this; the Nasdaq system also has a rule that requires traders to display the ticker symbol when trading. So hedge funds tend to be “off” and do not display their ticker symbols.
In addition, because of
