AIM spread betting risks!?


Recommended Posts



I'm currently formulating a day trading strategy as I will be using IG Index to spread bet on UK shares only. When previously buying and holding actual shares I avoided AIM listings due to the liquidity risk.

Now my intention is to day trade only, holding zero overnight positions. Taking this into account, can anyone highlight the risks of placing small orders on AIM listed securities?

I understand how the liquidity issue of AIM assets affects holding physical stock but I don't believe the same risk applies to taking short-term positions through spread betting?

Appreciate any guidance on this matter.

Many thanks,
