About the online training programme

Cross-market manipulation involves undertaking trading in one market with a view to improperly influencing the price of the same or a related product in another market. A manipulator could transact (or place an order to transact) in one market to influence the behaviour of market participants in another market, so that the manipulator can profit from the impact in the other markets. How this takes place appears in many forms, including cross-border, cross-time, cross-commodity, cross-jurisdiction, and so forth. Hence, various techniques have to be mastered in order to prevent or detect this form of market abuse.
