Churning

From lawbrain.com

The practice whereby a broker dealing in securities abuses the confidence of a client for personal gain by unnecessarily trading stocks to earn more commissions with little regard for the welfare and well-being of said client. Churning is unethical (not necessarily illegal), and may yield a civil suit for the recovery of damages by the victim.
