Have you ever heard of this? “Making profits trading penny stocks requires lots of luck;” I’m not going to argue against it because it is true to an extend.
However, it’s still up to us as of whether we want to be successful in this venture or not. If you have been consistently reading my blogs, you may have read about the Guru, Tim Sykes. Do you think it was all luck that made him a millionaire? I don’t think so, he achieved his success through his hard work and dedication. You too can do what this guy has done if you choose to be devoted to this market as he is.
Below are some of the most common mistakes made by stocks traders, must of them can be avoided. This blog is written especially for you, to help you to not making those same mistakes.
The company’s location
Many people think trading stocks does not require knowledge, especially penny stocks. However, investing through stocks ask that traders know what they are doing. First thing to look for before investing into a company is the location of such company. Not knowing whether or not a company is active is one of the most common mistakes made by stocks traders.
You do not want to invest your money into a company that is not really around. Scams exist in everything nowadays, in order not to be preyed on by those scams is to know what you’re doing and to also do your research.
How long has this company been in business?
You might think once you have done your research and confirmed that the company is indeed legit, there’s no more obstacles not to invest your money. Nonetheless, there are other factors that can affect your trading experience with this company. Some people based their trading only on the length of the company’s existence, not even checking how successful or unsuccessful has this company been. I know a company that has been around for long time should be successful, otherwise it would not still be standing. But sometimes they have been sold, and resold to different owners while the name and the founded date stay the same.
Who are managing the company?
Knowing at least a little about the managers of the company is a big plus. Stocks do not increase in value whenever they want to, it is something that has a lot to do with the success of the company. Some managers are very interested in their company’s stocks because many of them own shares just like the public. For this reason and including the company’s success those managers are always working hard to ensure that they are on the right path.
On the other hand, some managers work in the same way as the con-artists. You may have heard about the pump and dump schemes over and over already. Some company’s managers are part of those schemes, now you see how important it is to know about the persons who are managing the company in which you are going to invest.
What are the company products?
Lastly, but not least, you have to know what products the company is selling. Penny stocks trading is something that we do on a daily basis. Some companies have products that can sell more during a certain period of time in the year. If you know what products they are selling, it will be easier for you to know exactly when you should be looking to trade those stocks.
Take your time!
I almost forget to mention this one. It’s one of the most important things in this blog. Don’t you ever trade with pressure, always take your time to make the right decision. Once you enter a position there is nothing else you can do if you find yourself losing your hard earned money. You could only accept the loss and move forward, but if you do take your time things may turn out to be in your favor.
Good luck trading! Don’t forget to share this blog with your friends on Facebook as well as any other social media profile you may have.
