Introduction
This paper examines what is unethical about insiders trading. To conceptualize the
phenomena, unethical is any activity that is against what is thought to be moral for an individual,
an occupation or a firm. Persons and businesses may act in an unethical way (Peterson, 2002).
Insiders are individuals who are not allowed to trade in a stock that belongs to his company as he
or she may be having information about the firm. Unethical which is an antonym of ethical
means doing what is not ethical. Ethics depend on society whereby society encompasses all
aspects of life consisting of economic, political and social.
Categorization of unethical activities will depend on the theory that is used to arrive at a
decision as far as ethics are concerned. There are two theories that are used to define what is
ethically right which are; consequentialism theory which evaluates the importance or the value of
the consequences on the state (Ivanhoe et al,2005) while deontological approach checks on the
what is right and wrong with regard to specific activities that are to be undertaken(Udehn,2002).
Unethical actions are those that are illegal or are against the morals and standards that are set by
a particular society. Concerning the paper, ethics have to be looked at in insider trading to
quantify what is unethical in this field in that, what is against the ethics of a particular state will
primarily be regarded as wrong. The subject is two sided as there are legal activities carried out
by insiders and illegal activities that are carried out by the same insider. An analysis of the two
concepts gives out what is really unethical about insider trading.

Body
Insider trading means the exchange of a firm's securities such as bonds where the
propellers of the activity are people with entrée to information intended for people who are not
members of the public on the firm. Depending on the country where the company runs, there are
debates on the legality of these activities (Hofmann,2011). The illegality of the business is on the
fact that some investors who may not be within the state may not be having information which
these inside traders have. A disadvantage in the competition, therefore, rises as unequal playing
ground is prevalent.
There are other instances where the exchange of goods and services by particular insiders
is allowed. The determining factor, in this case, is on the information that is available. If the data
is not in the public domain, then the activities are rendered legal, and vice versa is true. Various
authorities have a requirement that such actions take place for efficient administration
(Bhattacharya, 2002). Rules and regulations governing a state differ from one country to another
where the same applies in enforcement. Anyone who gets information that is not meant for
public and uses the same information to carry out trading activities is guilty of a crime.
In the United States, insiders have to meet the legal requirements which are set by the
SEC when they are exchanging shares that belong to their company. SEC rules and regulations
stipulate that if by chance a company unveils information which is nonpublic to only one person
the company should also provide the same information to the public(Harris,2003).
The United States has put in measures to ...
