How is a Rigged Stock Market Going to Affect Your Child’s Financial Future?

Many people are skeptical of the financial system in general, and with good reason considering the financial meltdowns and scandals in recent years. Bernie Madoff’s name became a household word. Now there is more evidence to substantiate claims that the stock market is rigged against you.

Are you invested in the stock market? Do you really understand it? Many people have no understanding of the stock market what so ever and depend solely on their financial advisors and brokers for guidance. But as Warrant Buffet said, “Never invest in a business you cannot understand.” 

In spite of what seems to be more than ample checks and balances in the system, the stock market continues to be rigged with several tried and true ploys.

  • Insider Trading – The buying or selling of a security by someone who has access to material, non-public information about the security
  • High Frequency Trading (HFT) – Financial brokers and trading firms using advanced computer algorithms and ultra-high speed data networks to execute trades
  • Creating Artificial Shortages
  • Institutional clients know the outcome of information before the investing public does
  • Political Influence
