insider dealing or insider trading
This refers to the illegal use of privileged information which, if made public, would significantly affect the share price. For example, if someone knows that a company is about to make an announcement which will affect the price of its shares; it would be an insider dealing if he/she uses that information to buys or sells shares in advance of the announcement to make a profit.
