How Does Market Manipulation Work?

There are various forms of stock manipulation. One way a brokerage firm can manipulate the price of a stock is to horde shares of it. This makes it scarce and thereby pushes its value up. When the stock reaches a certain value, the firm sells off its shares at a large profit. The stock price plummets and innocent investors sustain significant losses.

If you believe you have been the victim of stock manipulation, you should hire an attorney who truly understands this complex area of law. You can't do much better than hiring the attorney who writes the book on it. To meet with Mr. Robbins, call 212-755-3100 or just contact our firm online.
