Summer is always slower when it comes to penny stocks
Summer is here. This is where you have to be extra picky with the penny stocks you get in. You also have to be very alert. I usually limit the amount I put into penny stocks summer months. It is a lot harder to make money. January through March are usually the hottest months. Those months are the easiest to make money. In the summer volume dries up and companies seem to be more sneaky. So be alert. Watch the SEC filings, Watch the charts, and don’t be afraid to cut losses. Penny Stocks are streaky. You will go on winning streaks and losing streaks. During the losing streaks it is very important you learn how to cut losses. I have seen some traders win on 9 in a row and end up broke on 1 because they didn’t cut losses and kept averaging down over and over again and the stock kept falling. You need to learn to have a basic knowledge of charts. You need to learn to read SEC filings and find out what they mean. You need to learn to watch level 2. If you have questions about a stock jump on Google and ask those questions. Don’t just listen to what others say. Most cases it is the blind leading the blind. If you see VFIN show up on the ask showing only 10k shares and not going away that most likely isn’t someone shorting. Stop listening to people trying to pump the stock and jump on Google or youtube and find answers. You have to be able to act quickly in penny stocks. I have been riding high in a stock that seemed like it was going to go up forever and see one SEC filing crush the stock. If you don’t know how to read that SEC filing you will have to wait for the next day or until you can ask someone before you realize you should have gotten out. If you see something you don’t understand ask but also jump online on a major search engine and try to do your own research. That way you can ask a more direct question. I talk a lot about a team here and being a group and working together but it also requires effort on everyone’s end as well. I am usually an open book when it comes to SEC filings, charts and the L2 even if I am in the stock. It is easier for me to be direct and blunt through direct message or over the phone. I still want you to double check everything I say as well. Get in the habit of always double checking everything so you can be confident with your own decision making. Again summer months are difficult you want to get in the habit of taking profits earlier and learning some chart plays. Don’t be a sheep and just follow the crowd. Everyone wants a stock that goes from .01 to .10 but those are rare, and if you can find a stock that goes back and forth from .01 to .02 10 times you will make a lot more money playing that cause you can profit and reinvest those profits. This time of a year it is good to be creative with your profit taking. An example of this is finding a .0004x.0005 stock that has decent volume. Sit on both the Bid and the Ask. Lower the number of shares you are trying to buy on the bid and stack the ask when you want to buy more shares and then once someone sells you shares then add more to the bid and lower the shares you are trying to sell on the ask. This will encourage people to sell when you want shares and buy when you want to sell shares. While everyone else is trying to be greedy and hoping the .0004 will go to .01 you are making money flipping it for 20% at a time. I believe this summer is extremely important for everyone to learn how to trade and learn to take profits and cut losses. 2018, in my opinion, will be huge for Marijuana stocks. In August and September, you should be able to load up on marijuana stocks and see some huge profits with the states legalizing recreational use of marijuana in 2018. You want to have as much powder available to load up on these Marijuana stocks.
