Yogesh Chauhan, Chakrapani Chaturvedula, Viswanathan Iyer



The paper reviews the existing studies on insider trading, market efficiency, and regulation. We suggest that insider trading information is useful to escalate the price discovery. However, most of studies on insider trading are concentrated on developed markets. Hence, the paper identifies areas where research is needed. We show that insider trading issue should be evaluated on emerging markets so that proper regulation on insider trading can be framed.
