Selling Away

A broker is, by definition, an intermediary, one who makes his or her money on the commissions obtained from the selling and buying of shares that belong to third parties.

Sometimes, a stockbroker might try to download his or her own holding of a certain security onto an unsuspecting investor; this practice is known as selling away. When selling securities from their own holdings, stockbrokers must make sure they are telling investors so, if not they might be committing fraud.
