MILWAUKEE – Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, today announced the addition of a new Firm Element course to its e-learning catalog.

Regulation M is designed to prevent manipulation of market making activities by underwriters, issuers and other participants in securities offerings. The regulation is intended to strengthen the integrity and fairness of the markets by regulating the activities that could result in artificially raised prices or create an illusion of active trading in the market where little to none may exist.

The course, “Regulation M – Curbing Market Manipulation,” serves as a review of the key components of Regulation M. The course covers the six rules that comprise Regulation M, the history and necessity of the regulation, and FINRA guidance designed to help ensure compliance with the regulation. This course is geared towards intermediate learners who have a good understanding of the market making process as it relates to the capital markets.

Course Topics Include:

  • Regulation Overview
  • Rule 100
  • Rule 101: Restrictions on Distribution Participants
  • Rule 102: Restrictions on Issuers and Selling Security Holders
  • Rule 103: NASDAQ Market Making
  • Rule 104: Stabilizing Bids
  • Rule 105: Short Selling Before a Public Offering
