An Overview of Churning

Dishonest brokers take advantage of sales commissions in a process known as churning. Churning is the act of executing trades simply for the commission charges.

It can occur if you have a discretionary account that permits trades without you giving authorization each time. A related practice, excessive trading, is done for purposes other than generating commissions.

Churning and excessive trading may be violations of various securities laws such as SEC Rule 15c1-7, FINRA Rule 2310 and FINRA Rule 2310-2(b)(2). If you’re the victim of excessive trading or churning, you may have legal rights against your brokerage firm and financial adviser.
