Market Abuse is split into two different aspects (under EU definitions):
1. Insider dealingWhere a person who has information not available to other investors (for example, a director with knowledge of a takeover bid) makes use of that information for personal gain
2. Market manipulationWhere a person knowingly gives out false or misleading information (for instance, about a company’s financial circumstances) in order to influence the price of a share for personal gain
In 2013/2014, the EU updated its legislation on market abuse, and harmonized criminal sanctions. In the 2015 Danish European Union opt-out referendum, the Danish population rejected the adoption of the 2014 market abuse directive (2014/57/EU) and much other legislation.
