This paper intends to investigate the potential of market manipulation in under regulated markets that does not exist in regulated ones. I do this by looking at the previous literature discovered on ambiguity aversion, and how it is linked to the increase of social media’s effect on price changes in markets. I investigate two different markets that are regulated and unregulated. These markets are the US stock exchange and the cryptocurrency market. I then see what the effect that twitter has on the two over the same periods of time using the most up-to-date models. Finally, I recommend policy changes that will help prevent market manipulation of under regulated markets.
