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.

also, IG charge 2 cent per  US share... so if the share price is very low, it will be a lot of fees I presume

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 .

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
