3 Top Penny Stock Trading Lessons
Every week I give a Trading Challenge webinar. They alternate between Q&A sessions and live-trading webinars.
Over time, lessons from webinars compound to grow your knowledge account. Come with questions and work to get better at trading penny stocks under $1.
Last week’s Q&A webinar started with a little rant. Too many people fail to take profits off the table. Why?
Because promoters and groupthink tell them to HODL. Let’s start there. Read to the end to discover what you’ll learn when you watch the webinar replay.
Penny Stock Trading Lesson 1: A Trade Is Not a Trade Until You Exit
This lesson isn’t limited to penny stocks…
Take bitcoin (BTC), for example. So many people are HODLing (not taking profits) while it’s getting destroyed. As I write, it’s trading 40% off its highs. And almost nobody took profits. Frankly, it’s disgusting.
Remember I warned in Nov how bad $BTC $ETH #Bitcoin #Ethereum would get, not due to #cryptocurrency but due to too many #crypto promoters who are like corrupt penny stock promoters telling newbs to hold & hope. As $LTNC $GGII $HMBL $VPER $OZSC proves, TAKE PROFITS INTO STRENGTH! https://t.co/WdcWS9qiZ9

In the past, these HODLers got rewarded for ‘holding on for dear life.’ That’s what HODL stands for. It could be one of the most irresponsible terms in the history of finance. I know it has paid well for some, but you need to take profits.
A trade is not a trade until you exit.
I don’t care how much you have in unrealized profits. I’ve been around for 20+ years. I’ve seen so many people with millions in unrealized profits. They don’t take profits, and it becomes worthless. Sometimes it even turns into losses.
Penny Stock Trading Lesson 2: See the Pattern for What It Is
Last week when Enzolytics, Inc. (OTCPK: ENZC) re-spiked, all these idiots on message boards were saying, “ENZC is coming back.”
If you go through a thousand charts of promoted stocks, you’ll see it. When a former supernova spikes again, the third day often ends red. But a lot of brainwashed newbies believe in this company. They don’t see the pattern for what it is.
The hilarious thing is that the company COO tweeted at me. I’ve never even talked to the guy. The gist of it is that he wants me to be more positive about the company.
Why? Why should I be positive about your piece-of-crap company?
(It has nothing to do with whether I want your company to succeed.) It’s the height of all laziness and idiocy to ignore thousands of historical examples. It exemplifies my teachings to a T…
✔ It has a ton of promoters.
✔ There’s a ridiculous amount of hype.
✔ It had a perfect supernova in early 2021.
✔ The entire 7-step framework is clearly defined.
Check out the chart…
It’s not an exact science, but when these things re-spike, it’s often muted. It’s like a bouncing ball. Each bounce is lower and lower.
Recognize the pattern for what it is. It will save you a lot of frustration.
Penny Stock Trading Lesson 3: Use the Tools Created To Make Your Life Easier
This lesson comes from a question about how to find promoted stocks…
Your life is much easier now than when I was creating my early DVDs and video lessons. I had to sign up for all these different newsletters. I had to do a ton of manual scans.
You don’t have to go searching. StocksToTrade and the STT Breaking News Chat feature have everything you need built in. This is why I say you should use it. It blows my mind that many of you don’t — especially StocksToTrade’s Breaking News Chat.
I get this question almost daily: “How do you find these stocks right at the open?”
STT Breaking News alerts them all. It does the heavy lifting. Not every alert is a home run. But it gets you watching the right stocks.
