Additional Information: Wedbush Securities Fined in Late Trading Scandal

The NASD censured and fined Wedbush Securities $150,000 for inadequate systems and procedures to detect and prevent late trading in mutual funds and for inaccurately recording entry times for customer orders. Late trading refers to the practice of placing orders to buy or sell mutual fund shares after the 4 p.m. ET market close, at the net asset value established when the market closes. Late trading allows traders to profit from market-moving events which occur after the close of the market which are not reflected in that day’s closing share price.

Wedbush Securites Sanctioned for Failing to Supervise Broker

Wedbush Securities, Inc. was sanctioned for failing to supervise a broker who was committing sales violations. A Wedbush broker was investigated, sanctioned, fined and suspended. The NASD found that the broker exercised control of a customer’s account and made excessive trades, known as “churning.” The NASD also found that Wedbush failed to enforce the firm’s written supervisory procedures, which are designed to prevent such violations.
