The Australian Securities & Investments Commission has expressed concern about a rise in day-trading activity among so-called ‘mum and dad’ investors during the coronavirus lockdown. ASIC notes that even market professionals often find it hard to time the market during volatile trading conditions, and it warns that retail investors risk incurring significant losses at a time when many cannot afford to do so. ASIC also notes that more retail investors are trading in complex investment products such as contracts for difference.
