MNB fines private individual for market manipulation
The National Bank of Hungary (MNB) yesterday fined a private individual on charges of manipulating markets, Hungarian news agency MTI reported today.
MNB spokesman István Binder said the individual, identified only as Tibor F., was fined because of a transaction involving a little-traded share on the Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE). The investor simultaneously bought and sold the shares in a market manipulating practice known as a "wash trade", he added.
