Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define SEC.

An independent agency of the US Federal Government created following the stock market crash of the 1930s.  The primary function of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) is to enforce laws against market manipulation.  The SEC states it has a three-part mission: 1. To protect investors, 2. To maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and 3. To facilitate capital formation.
