The cases involved different types of market manipulation, including suspected violations on information disclosure and stock manipulation.
Tang Hanbo, who has been punished for illegal trading twice before, was fined for what China’s Securities and Regulatory Commission on Monday called market manipulation.
The government has cracked down on securities violations following the crash of the Chinese stock market last year, probing fund managers, brokers and even reporters.
He was also hit with CNY 925 million ($133.8 million) in fines and disgorgement over domestic trades carried out from December 2014 to April 2015.
Specifically, Tang was ordered to pay CNY 251 million ($36.3 million) for allegedly using the link between the Shanghai and Hong Kong exchanges to manipulate a Shanghai-listed stock.

Four days after Republicans raised the debt ceiling, the US credit downgrade happened, and the stock market plunged.
I predicted the downgrade would happen in late July/August, even if Republicans raised the debt ceiling, and the stock market would crash immediately.
I dont think everything comes crashing down in March, but this week likely marks the start of major failure.
Last Wednesdays fall in crude oil prices was the steepest in a year at 5% in one day.
So, my predictions about oil prices have gone very wrong, and I wont venture another.
