Like any other stock, penny stocks are traded based on the laws of supply and demand, meaning that the price rises when there are more buyers than sellers, and when the sellers outnumber the buyers, the stock will decline in price. Penny stocks differ from so-called “traditional” stocks because they can trade extremely rapidly when sudden buying or selling pressure hits. Penny stocks are also subject to quite a bit of dilution by company insiders, causing a substantial drop in price, causing not insignificant losses for traders holding the shares. Because of the threat of large losses, it’s important to protect a penny stock trading account by having a solid penny stock trading strategy in place.
