Getting Started with Day Trading Penny Stocks

by Ankita Shrivastava Expert Writer
Although the strategies for day trading penny stocks vary, there are some basics everyone needs to adhere to. The individual strategies can vary in much the same way as taste for music or movies vary from person to person. After you have got the hang of the fundamentals, all you then need to do is to find out what works best based on your aptitude and sensibilities. So, before devising a strategy for day trading with penny stocks, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Would you be able to stick to the stock of a company even if you do not like it?
  • Would you have the resources including time to keep going with your chosen strategy?
  • Would you be able to tolerate the risk involved? The volatility involved in day trading penny stocks demands some sort of psychological firmness. Ask yourself whether you are up to it or not.
  • Do you have the liquid capital required to make the chosen strategy work? If not, you would end up ruining your finances big time.
  • Be honest with yourself about the time, attention span and patience required for your chosen strategy? Dig deep and ask yourself whether you really have it in you to go the distance for fulfilling the potential of the strategy?
Besides these questions, you still have to be aware of the basics of day trading penny stocks. They are given below:

  • You can choose straight investing but you need to research for monitoring the financial data of the business. You need to diversify your stocks so that it reduces your risk. In any case, success would depend on diversifying your stocks, but it needs to be done after thorough research of the company and the market.
  • It is important that you chart your penny stocks and be particularly considerate of developing visual clues to associate them with mathematical equations. This would help you look at the various patterns in the stocks which you would not have noticed otherwise. You need to spot patterns in order to evolve your strategy further.
  • You need to identify your time frames for any type of stock trading and day trading penny stocks are not an exception. If you are able to reduce time frames, it would mean reducing your risk. You should realize that fast and frequent trading can be profitable if you are aware of the market trends and know what you are doing for making a profit.
