What is Unauthorized Trading?
“Unauthorized trading” occurs when a broker does not obtain authorization from their client before conducting trades in a customer account. Brokers who do not obtain authorization breach their ethical obligations and violate federal and state laws and rules and regulations of the securities industry.
