However UttamValue Steel hit the Upper Circuit of 20% at Rs 6.72 at 10.46 am in the morning with most of the Volume of over Three Lakh Shares having taken place inside half an hour around this time against the two week average of just 12000 shares which even includes today’s volume ! ~ Those who sold clearly must have been unaware of the Notice and it’s posting on the BSE website in the afternoon after they sold in the morning  ! 

How can BSE explain what looks like apparent Insider Trading !?….Maybe it needs SEBI’s help to do so ! 

At 10.46 am in the morning Uttam Value Steel hits 20% Rs 6.72 Upper circuit on Friday,February 21,2014 even though BSE uploaded the favourable Corporate Announcement at 2.33 pm in the afternoon ! ~ Insider Trading ?

Either it is clearly Insider Trading by those who knew before hand or got the notice in their hands before it was put up or BSE put it up in the morning itself on their Notice Board in the Stock Exchange Building before uploading it on their website in the afternoon at 2.33 pm 

I don’t see any other Explanation to this and BSE needs to explain what really happened or else it may see it’s credibility dented even further

  1. Hi,

    This is not the only case, Such Front Running happens in most cases. I can quote you atleast 2-3 cases in mkt every week where there are Corporate announcement (expected and Unexpected) and the price discovery has happened before the announcement.

    The better way to put it is, Our market is not matured and there are profits to be made because of difference in communication time to the Masses.

    As there no tough Insider trading Laws, There is an opportunity to earn Super Normal profit (Only If you have contacts). ??

    PS : I dont have any yet.

    1. What’s Integrity to an Opportunity ! Jigam….surely there must be exchange employee and brokers collusions and often may involve company insiders and promoters too in such activity….In BSE it has happened in the past right from the President’s Office ! and he had to resign !

      You are absolutely right on the worrying frequency of such Insider activity….SEBI needs to step up it’s regulatory eye here….Retail Investors are a dying species because they have been ripped off and unless Credibilty in Exchange Operations and Corporate Governance in Listed Companies is not strengthened their Confidence is not going to return and neither will they

  2. Well this is not to take sides,but at least in BSE you get announcements,much faster then at NSE.Here in this case also @BSE it was announced at 2.33 pm,where as at NSE it was @ 2.40 pm.You can check any announcements.NSE is always late.
