AIM market

I have never traded shares in this market but it has a reputation as being 'exciting' which can be taken both ways. My main concern would be lack of liquidity if I needed to get out. 

Good article here,

I would take special note of the last couple of sentences.

Started here last April got into big losses with Silver by chickening out when it went the wrong way. Tried some 1 minute bets and lost. By May I have dropped half my cash.

Then I got more controlled by betting on GLENCORE and M & S made a few pounds on Glen,but lost out on M& S. Then I got into Lithium via EMH and soon got all my cash back. I have a big up bet on them and am doing really well. In the waiting times between rises I see what would have happened if I held out on Glen when I had them at 115p now £3 plus.

There are other things as bad as making a duff bet. i.e. My dog pressing the sell button and losing £500 or selling on a June contract when I held a buy on a Mar contract not realising one cancelled the other. I'm still learning,but Profits far outweigh the losses now. Good luck all and Happy new year.

AIM can be a good market to trade but the biggest advice I can give is this. Make sure you spread the risk across different stocks and sectors. And always use guaranteed stops. AIM will generally move quicker than shares on other markets. A lot of share traders will try bottom fishing but I think this is really risky. From my experience AIM shares tend to move more on fundamentals and sentiment than on the charts.

If you're new to trading, AIM is probably not the place to start. In addition to good advice others said, watch out for wide spreads. Some will have 10% or more, i.e. you buy and you're immediately 10% down.

 

What books have you read?

How are you planning to research and filter the shares you buy (or short)?
