Penny Stocks


Recommended Posts

Depends on how 'penny' stock you mean. You can spread bet and CFD trade on small market cap stocks, which in theory have stock in the value of pennies. You need to be mindful of the market cap though. That's the main thing.

IG requires Mcap of I think about £10million.

there are some interesting small market cap stocks out there though which trade for pennies and have more than 10 mil mcap. I guess reason for this is holding a significant percentage of the company in a spread betting account and liquidity and everything. Imagine at 5% margin deposit you'd only need £150,000 to own 5% of the company at £3m which wouldn't take long to accumulate on the platform.

there is differing criteria for IG listings for leveraged and non-leveraged stocks, see link below posted just a couple of days ago on AIM stocks, and don't forget the IG DMA platform for leveraged or non-leveraged share dealing direct on the LSE.

Interesting. So the Penny stocks / AIM markets which they say to have a look at are

  1. Burford Capital: world's largest provider of arbitration and litigation finance
  2. Fevertree Drinks: the upmarket mixer maker
  3. Hutchinson China MediTech: the biopharma and pharma stock
  4. ASOS: fast fashion for millennials
  5. Abcam: a profitable biopharma business

Interestingly ASOS are down over 50% over the last 12 months and they've made the list. I know there are also one of AIMs largest success stories up quadruple digit % since their initial float. Remember when they were called As Seen On Screen? And they used to highlight things which people on Big Brother used to wear etc.... ahhh the good old days.

Hi All,

Please aware of the penny stock fee in IG .

I brought 5000 share per share @ 0.48507   the total amount was 2425.35 . This will cost commission of  100 $ for BUY and for your sell  fee is same ie 100 $. Like other platform IG does not cap the commission fee to 1%.  It could have been nice if  IG charge same as other platform.

I will never buy less 5 $ penney stock from IG .

    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward  
    • Ultimately what ever happens regarding " cycles" will be of no help to me . I am my own trader    Re volatility , its my niche , My models pick up most swings high and low .  My methods are recactive not so much predictive .   Its doesnt matter where it goes as long as it goes  .  1 year predictions are just a little fun with no weight in my profitability . Most years are up so just on that you should be bullish year on year and you will be right more times than not  .  I dont care if i am right or wrong . I left my ego behind a while back  .  Vix hasnt been around long enough to have a handle on its efficacy but i have done studies on realised volatility back multi decades and i put some credence in my conclusion  , but once again it will have zero influence on my returns unlike most  . We know there are no absolutes in this game , just probabilities and possibilities , define the former and manage the latter and it takes care of itself   ..  rock on   Wise words 
    • Can anyone help me understand why i am not seeing any market depth data for some shares? For example, the pic below is what i see for SThree plc (STEM) in my share dealing / isa account. I am seeing market depth for other shares, so it is just a case that there is no market in this share? I find this a bit strange given that it is listed on the main market. Is it some sort of bug in the trading platform?
