Consumers have The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. “This was signed into law on July 21, 2010 by President Barack Obama. The legislation set out to reshape the U.S. regulatory system in a number of areas including but not limited to consumer protection, trading restrictions, credit ratings, regulation of financial products, corporate governance and disclosure, and transparency.” (SEC.gov)
The financial market is protected by The Securities Exchange Act of 1934. “The Act also identifies and prohibits certain types of conduct in the markets and provides the Commission with disciplinary powers over regulated entities and persons associated with them. It also empowers the SEC to require periodic reporting of information by companies with publicly traded securities.” (SEC.gov)
