Front Running (Definition, Examples) | How Traders Use it?

Churning: The practice of a provider seeing a patient more often than is medically necessary, primarily to increase revenue through an increased number of visits. A practice, in violation of SEC rules, where a salesperson affects a series of transactions in a customer’s account which are excessive in size and/or frequency in relation to the size and investment objectives of the account. An insurance agent who is churning an account is normally seeking to maximize the income (in commissions, sales credits or mark-ups) derived from the account.  

FRONT-RUNNING: Form of market manipulation where a broker/dealer delays processing of a large customer trade in an underlying security until the firm can execute an options trade in that security in anticipation of the client’ s trade impact on the underlying security.

Pump and dump: A a form of securities fraud that involves artificially inflating the price of an owned stock through false and misleading positive statements, in order to sell the cheaply purchased stock at a higher price. Once the operators of the scheme “dump” their overvalued shares, the price falls and investors lose their money.

PODCAST: Direct Primary Medical Care


Direct Primary Care (DPC) Involves an Employer or a Patient Paying for a Doctor via a Monthly Membership Fee.  DPC Doctors Do NOT Bill Insurance.  There is NO Fee-for-Service.

Texas CEO Magazine Eric Bricker 1 - SO 14 - Texas CEO Magazine

There is Copay for Each Office Visit and Visits are Unlimited.

Direct Primary Care Doctors Are Most Frequently Family Practice Physicians, but Internal Medicine and Pediatricians Can Also Have Direct Primary Care Practices.

The Average Direct Primary Care Practice Has a Panel of 345 Patients, with a Goal of About 600 Patients at Full Capacity.

For Comparison, the Typical Fee-for-Service Primary Care Doctor Has a Patient Panel of 2,500.

57% of Direct Primary Care Practices Contract with Employers That Pay the Monthly Membership on the Employee’s Behalf.

Direct Primary Care is a Strategy to Increase the Quality of Care and Decrease Healthcare Costs for an Employee Health Plan.
