Quotes of the day:

\'\'It is therefore doubtful if President Mohammadu Buhari will be able to deliver his campaign promises to Nigerians if the price of crude oil which accounts for some 90% of Nigeria’s total export revenue and 75% of total consolidated revenue continue to hover around $50 per barrel between now and 2019.\'\' Chika Onuegbu in his 2015 paper titled “HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL OIL POLITICS ON CRUDE OIL PRICES, INVESTMENTS AND EMPLOYMENT RELATIONS IN THE NIGERIAN OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY”

— Chika Onuegbu

Wash trading is a process whereby a trader buys and sells a security for the express purpose of feeding misleading information to the market. In some situations, wash trades are executed by a trader and a broker who are colluding with each other, and other times wash trades are executed by investors acting as both the buyer and the seller of the security. Wash trading is illegal under U.S. law, and the IRS bars taxpayers from deducting losses that result from wash trades from their taxable income.
