Insider Trading Data

This item downloads historical insider data for US Stocks. The data goes back to January 2007 and it is updated monthly. It downloads all the transactions filled and reported to the SEC by insiders.
Individuals, such as officers, key employees, directors, and large shareholders, who may have access to non-public information about a company, should report their transactions to the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission). These transactions are made public and are used by investors to make trading decisions. The buying and selling practice of these individuals is called Insider trading.

After the item downloads data, an 'insider_data' database is created and is used to store all the insider data and the following fields are created:
OwnerName: The insider name
TransactionType: The transaction order type
Action: 'A' for acquire and 'D' for Dispose. 'A' means that the transaction is a buy, while 'D' means that the transaction is a sell.
TransactionDate: The transaction date
TransactionShares: The number of shares involved in the transaction
TransactionAmount: The amount of money involved in the transaction
TransactionPricePerShare: The average price per share
Relationship: Owner's relationship to company
IsDirector: Indicates whether the insider is a director. Returns 1 if this is true.
IsTenPercentOwner: Indicates whether the insider is a ten percent owner (owns at least 10 percent of the company). Returns 1 if this is true.
SharesOwned: The number of shares owned by the insider
OwnerShipType: The ownership form. It could be Direct or Indirect.
TransactionCode: The transaction code used by the SEC.
As an example: the transaction code 'S' means Open market or private sale of non-derivative or derivative security.

To get more information about the transaction codes, please refer to this document: http://www.sec.gov/about/forms/form4data.pdf.
The data is downloaded from the Gray Wolf Corporation: http://graywolfcorp.com.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
