Driving The Bucket Shop Out of Business
The stock, exchange wants to rid
the ccfuntry of security frauds. That
lis a step in the right direction. In
fact, the elimination of any fraud is
commendable. ■. ■ \ .. - .
Mr. Simmons, the president of the
New York Stock Exchange, is very
anxious to run the "bucketeers" out
of business. The bucket shop is a
competitor of the big exchange; and,
of course being smaller arte! a weaker
institution,, is less-able to stand a
crash", which frequently occurs and
gives the whole business a black eye
from bottom to top.
The stock exchange is primarily!
for the purpose of merchandising 1
stocks and securities for customers
on a legitimate commission. How
ever the stock exchange has gonej
much further; it is attempting to set i
the price on practically evrey prod-1
net under the sun.

which was the only real market in

know nothing about. Naturally,
