Keith Andrew Halsnik (CRD #5018189, Registered Representative, Bellefonte, Pennsylvania) was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. The sanction was based on findings that Halsnik failed to timely and fully respond to FINRA's initial requests for information and documents as part of an inquiry to determine, among other things, whether Halsnik engaged in excessive trading in customer accounts. The findings stated that it was not until FINRA sent Halsnik a notice of suspension pursuant to FINRA Rule 9552 that he responded. The findings also stated that Halsnik failed to respond to additional FINRA requests for information and documents regarding mutual fund transactions in customer accounts. The findings also included that Halsnik failed to respond to a FINRA request for testimony. FINRA Case No. 2011029300801
