Hi 

 

Thank you for your replies.

I have AIM stocks added to my watchlist but cannot trade most of them .. few examples: TLOU, BOIL, LION,URU, UPL.. Also there is no indication that I wont be able to open a position - only get the message when I actually try to place a trade (the button is green but the message appears when I click it).  Not very useful. 

New to CFDs really so still learning but find it hard to find enough information on IG.

well they all look like legit AIM tickers, the only one I could not find was UPL(?)

 

I don't see why IG would not have these available. Have you called the dealing desk to check? I would expect them to be available on a speadbet platform but I do not have a CFD account so cannot explain any more.

Hi  - please find the required info below. With the unborrowable stock you can always give us a call and we can check the underlying market to see if we can secure anything. Stockbroking only stock are generally those markets which have a small market cap, thin liquidity, and wouldn't be suitable for our leveraged offering. As a very rough rule, we're looking for £10m minimum market cap on UK stock, however other things like daily traded volume and free float levels are also important. 

 

TLOU
Unborrowable and no guaranteed stops

 

LION
Unborrowable

 

BOIL, URU, and UPL
Stockbroking only

If they think a stock will rise significantly during the day they don’t make it available on leverage. Remember in CFD you are betting against them in their own ecosystem. 
 

Perfect example is today. Due to the news over the weekend it was widely anticipated that the FTSE would rise. Guess what all the stocks that I tried which were  “unavailable to trade on leverage”  ended up rising 10pts or more

    • Stocks in Asia staged an impressive rally following the gains on Wall Street on the first day of Q4. A surprisingly-dovish move from the RBA saw the central bank raise rates, but only by 25ps instead of the expected 50bps. The bank left the door open to more increases, but cited the recent rapid pace of tightening as a reason to ease off for the time being. European futures are pointing towards further gains after yesterday's positive session, which came after a weak period for stocks that ended Q3 on a poor note and left some indices at their lowest levels since 2020. Today's calendar is light on data, but includes speeches from three Fed officials and the president of the ECB.
