What Is Churning?

Generating commissions from excessive trading is considered stockbroker churning. In many jurisdictions, churning is considered a breach of securities law and a federal crime. An allegation of churning is a serious crime with far-reaching implications. Just the allegation alone is significant enough to ruin a career and tarnish a personal reputation. A guilty verdict can be punishable by jail time, penalties and the loss of professional licenses required for work in the financial field. The activity is known by various names, including:

  • Churn and burn
  • Twisting
  • Overtrading
