  • Brokers trading in opposite directions of solicited customer transactions
  • Unauthorized trading
  • Suitability
  • Excessive trading
  • Free riding
  • Concentrations of securities in client accounts
  • Wash sales
  • The firm failed to investigate numerous “red flags” relating to the activities of a broker
