All of the following are TRUE of the limit up/limit down rule EXCEPT:

A) it is a rule designed to address severe and sudden price movements.

B) it utilizes specified price bands which prevent trades in stocks from occurring outside of those bands.

C) the mechanism employs trading pauses or halts for prolonged price movements.

D) price band parameters are the same during market opening and closing times as they are during all trading hours.

Answer: D

The limit up/limit down rule is designed to address severe and sudden price movements. It utilizes specified price bands (expressed as % depending on the current price of the stock) which prevents trades in stocks from occurring outside of those bands and employs trading pauses or halts for prolonged price movements. To account for increased volatility during market openings and closings, the % parameters governing the price bands are doubled during those times.

To launder illicit funds effectively, the money must go through a process known as layering. Layering will typically involve:

A) the deposit of illegal funds in a financial institution willing to launder them.

B) the use of transfers through several legal and governmental jurisdictions.

C) over-invoicing techniques that commingle illegal funds with legitimate funds.

D) the use of illegal funds to purchase goods that can later be sold.

Answer: B

The layering stage is where launderers attempt to conceal the source of the funds or assets. During this phase, launderers will transfer funds to multiple jurisdictions, deposit cash overseas, and resell assets in multiple jurisdictions. The key to successful layering is the crossing of several legal and governmental jurisdictions. This allows launderers to take full advantage of the varying degrees of regulation and the bureaucracy of different governmental cooperation laws.
