The FBI Could Unleash The Biggest Wave Of Insider Trading Charges Ever — WSJ
Nov. 19, 2010
A three year FBI investigation into insider trading around the country is about to break, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Federal agents have investigated consultants, hedge funds, mutual fund managers and investment banks, including bankers at Goldman Sachs.

The criminal and civil probes, which authorities say could eclipse the impact on the financial industry of any previous such investigation, are examining whether multiple insider-trading rings reaped illegal profits totaling tens of millions of dollars, the people say. Some charges could be brought before year-end, they say.
