I have experienced this first hand.
I have made some money Day-Trading, but the more successful I got, the more interference I got from my broker.
My first trades seemed fast. After I made money, the trades slowed way down. That is the front running he’s talking about IMHO.
Courts: Criminals wear placards or apologize to victims publicly. But some legal experts say the tactic is useless at best and repugnant at worst.

A drunken driver is ordered to carry in his wallet pictures of the people he killed. A wife-beater must apologize to his victim from the courthouse steps, with cameras rolling. A shoplifter is forced to pace outside the market from which she pilfered, wearing a huge sign that brands her a convicted thief.
It is justice by sandwich board, tearful apology and posted placard, the modern versions of the stocks and scarlet letters of colonial times. A small but attention-getting group of judges across the United States, fed up with a revolving cast of drug buyers, drunk drivers, johns and shoplifters who never seem to get the message, has been sentencing criminals to shame. They hope public humiliation succeeds where jail habitually fails.
“I think this type of sentencing is important,” says Ted Poe, a Harris County, Texas, district judge who has become nationally known for what he calls “public punishments.”
“The people I see have too good a self-esteem,” he says. “I want them to feel guilty about what they’ve done. I don’t want ’em to leave the courthouse having warm fuzzies inside.”

What is the “nuclear option”?
A Supreme Court nominee currently needs 60 votes to overcome a filibuster in the Senate. The “nuclear option” would eliminate that threshold, meaning the nominee would need only a simple majority, a historic departure for the tradition-laden Senate.
In selecting a respected, deeply conservative jurist, Mr. Trump has dared Democrats to pursue the kind of blanket obstructionism that they long accused Republicans of embracing during the Obama administration.
