Issuing a directive today, the market regulator said that movement of secondary market has been manipulated due to dissemination of sensitive information by the broker companies and merchant bankers.

“In recent days we have received many complaints about the market movement being swayed due to release of sensitive information,” said Niranjaya Ghimire, joint spokesperson for SEBON.

SEBON has also directed merchant bankers and share broker firms not to make any comments on the price of individual company or sub-index.

Citing the directive, Ghimire informed that brokerage firms and merchant bankers are engaging in market manipulation through media and other platforms.

SEBON has also warned that it would take strict action against the firms found to be disseminating information based on speculations related to individual company or sub-index.

During the meeting, the investors had urged SEBON and Nepse to implement fully automated trading system as soon as possible.
