    AIM

    AIM'S REGULATORY LANDSCAPE
    https://www.londonstockexchange.com.../regulatory-landscape/regulatorylandscape.htm

    The AIM market trading is conducted by Market Makers MMs. Even though a bid and offer price is stated it may not be at or near that quoted by the MMs. At times it is easy to be caught out by clicking too soon and accepting an offer. Market spreads vary enormously from 0.1% to 33% and in some shares they can vary from minute to minute.

    Most trades are done at market quote by MMs although you can trade by Limit Order or Fill or Kill. Limit Orders may be carried out at or better than the requested price. Fill or Kill is a price requested of the MMs that in theory should be accepted or rejected by them immediately - in practice there can be delays of considerable length and the position can't be cancelled. Sometimes no automated price is given and you can click to get the best price available - once clicked it cant be cancelled and trades may queue to be dealt with as the prices rises or falls.

    The fastest losses and profits are made in the micro-caps which are subject to manipulation when large trades go through. The MMs can delay publication of the trade from 1 hour and usually up to 3 hours. On occasions by more than 1 day. You can see that if most trades are 1,000 to 10,000 shares and one goes through for 300,000 shares the price can flip without warning. Some shares are quoted at very low prices indeed, maybe 0.015p 0.0285c.

    The NEX market is a secondary market to AIM. Some companies are quoted on AIM and NEX or just on NEX. The regulations are far less and trading is done by telephone only. Some shares have an additional NEX quote and seem not to be listed for some reason, so there are many more market participants than it seems.

    Some companies are quoted on ASX and AIM and often one market or the other controls the share. As the ASX has a minimum price of 0.1c with minimum movements of 0.1c and AIM has no minimum a tussle can take place.

    Caveat emptor.

    On AIM there are no Trading Halts as on the ASX. These halts are often for capital raising or the results of a mining companies activities etc., on AIM there in no warning at all and even though the majority of announcements RNSs are made before trading starts on the day, very many are not. Directors often make decisions concerning investments without notifying the market at all. Sometimes a few investors find out, so it seems, leaving the rest of the market unaware.

    At times shares will be in Trading Halt or Suspension on ASX: Whilst the AIM market carries on trading away merrily. Institutional investors can easily transfer investments from ASX to AIM but ordinary investors usually do not have that capability or at least can't do it at speed. Institutional investors or those of high net worth, can trade forward and supply shares later. Sometimes trades are completed in house by a broker and reported to the market immediately or later.

    Occasionally trades UT are announced that become the market price.
    At the closing of the auction the bids/offers are frozen and an attempt is made to match as many shares to be sold against shares to be bought - the result of this is what is known as the 'Uncrossing Trade' (UT).

    In some shares there is AT trading that is done at bid or offer quotation. These quotations may be done at the normal 'O' spread trading quotations or sometimes a separate quotation. This trading is not liked by MMs and in some shares efforts are made to discourage it.

    A few companies also trade simultaneously in the Republic of Ireland or are principally in Ireland and under Irish regulations. These shares charge stamp duty at 1% even though there is no stamp duty on other shares on AIM. A few companies trade simultaneously in Germany, France or South Africa.

    Moving on. An AIM/NEX microcap that is a good start as it shows risk to reward and all the goings on of a Chairman/CEO who does his own thing and shareholders just have to put up with it as he carries on regardless. Priced at 0.425p 0.8075c and might eventually be worth zero or maybe 30 times its present price. Basically, mega-high-risk and you pays your money and takes your chance. Past losses are at GBP36 million that could be used against future profits to save tax. The company's market cap is £2.85m AUD5.41m at 0.425p a share.

    Some videos to start off with that come over just great. Not forgetting losses on a Greenland punt and Steelmin currently in administration as the directors put in GBP1.1m not long before it collapsed. On the other hand they hold shares in Jupiter Mines ASX:JMS worth GBP2.6m AUD5m and royalties in El Limon worth USD2.95m. Cash is low at around GBP300K AUD570K and GBP1.1m AUD2.09m CLNs come up for repayment or flipped for another year on 19 December 2019.

    Possible upside is their Musonoi copper tenement in DRC positioned between Glencore's two tenements. See the videos below. Also their Mid Migori, Kenya tenement is close to getting a mining license with a gold JORC resource of 1.2m ounces at 1.2g per tonne and 620K ounces in tailing at 1.7g per tonne.

    Listen to the videos and come up with your own conclusion.

    AIM markets are particularly influenced by very many thousands of Twitter accounts. Often referred to as AIM madness. Most tweets are inherently biased as tweeters hold the shares. Many of those on AIM Twitter accounts are company directors.
    Above does not apply to VOX Markets and less so with Justin Waite, both include Podcasts.

    CIHL presently trade at around 36p after going xd 5.5p in January. The company's domain has moved to The British Virgin Islands BVI. The shares are very tightly held and movement can be sharp on few trades.

    Today the guys cover the announcement from Open Orphan PLC (AIM:ORPH) Testing of anti-viral for treating COVID-19. Dublin-listed pharma services company Open Orphan has begun testing an anti-viral treatment for COVID-19 through its London-based subsidiary Hvivo.

    Tiziana Life Sciences (AIM:TILS and NASDAQ:TLSA) is based around developing treatment from human molecules, Alan goes into more depth about the company. Once the lockdown is lifted we may get a second wave, hopefully we will have a treatment in place.

    Bidstack Group (AIM:BIDS) AIM-quoted native in-game advertising company serving the global video games industry across multiple platforms.

    AIM markets are particularly known for "PUMPING and DUMPING"
    A pump and dump scheme is generally part of a more complex grand plan of market manipulation on the targeted security. The Perpetrators (Usually stock promoters) convince company affiliates and large position non-affiliates to release shares into a free trading status as "Payment" for services for promoting the security. Instead of putting out legitimate information about a company the promoter sends out bogus e-mails (the "Pump") to millions of unsophisticated investors (Sometimes called "Retail Investors") in an attempt to drive the price of the stock and volume to higher points. After they accomplish both, the promoter sells their shares (the "Dump") and the stock price falls like a stone, taking all the duped investors' money with it.

    *** In the previous post BIDSTACK AIM:BIDS is loaded with shareholders who pump and dump. Price swings are WILD and you could lose up to 70% of your investment in one or two days. Or indeed gain up to 200%.

    OPEN ORPHAN AIM:ORPH is a Covid-19 interested investment and could rise 200% or move sharply in reverse without warning.

    TIZIANA LIFE SCIENCES AIM:TILS NASDAQ:TLSA. On AIM the market spread can be as high as 33% or as low as 3% and this widening or narrowing of the spread can be at lightening speed. Trades also in the states on the Pre-Market, Live Trading and After Market. Foreign to America Brokers are usually unable to put trades through on the Pre an After Market and may also not put the TRADE through DIRECT.

    News on Tiziana may come in from 5am in America to the close on the After Market at 11pm, over there.

    Tiziana are involved in marketing a spray that may or may not work for Covid-19 patients.
