By use of authenticated data structures, we can prevent this market manipulation done on the cloud in the form of stock bashing, pump and dump and runs etc. Solution to prevent clients buyers from this fraud or false information is that the server need to give a digest , proof of the information along with query answer to the client. And the client on the other hand can verify the information to be legitimate or not by the help of query, digest, proof, public key.
