    There are two types of insider trading. The first type occurs when someone trades shares at the stock exchange based on crucial information about the company which the public do not yet know. This is illegal regardless of whether you are a director, broker, friend or family member of an insider. The second is legal and occurs when an insider buys such shares but after the crucial information has been made public at which time there is no direct advantage over other investors.
