Watch our video on the NASDAQ penny stock list.
It comes as no surprise that the majority of traders avoid penny stocks like the plague. And it's easy to see why with their speculative nature, and volatile price changes. NASDAQ penny stocks are a bit different but still are risky.
It's not uncommon to see a penny stock soar up or plummet down over 100% or 200% in a short period. But, a small percentage of penny stock trades work out very well, which makes them appealing to those with smaller accounts. Like anything with trading, proper risk management is key when trading high volatility stocks. Entries and exits are key. Cut your losses quickly if the trade goes against you.
If you are thinking of subscribing to a daily NASDAQ penny stock list, you need to be aware of a few things. Make sure to bookmark our day trade watch list page and check it every day. We update this page nightly with very popular NASDAQ penny stocks that are looking to potentially break out in the short term.
Stock trading is filled with many strategies. As a result, you have many ways to make money with trading.
The goal of every trader is to make a profit. However, 90% of traders fail because they don't take the time to learn how to trade and what to look for. Things like candlesticks patterns, moving average crossovers, how vwap correlates with price entry and exits, and level 2 with time and sales.
New traders see penny stocks as cheap ways to grow an account without taking into consideration how penny stocks are manipulated.
That doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't trade them however. It means you need to know how to take advantages of the pumps and dump in the penny stock sector. Pump and dumps are a great way to scalp and make money if you know what you're doing. Getting the proper entry is important and knowing when to cut your losses is critical to your long term success as a momentum trader.
Trading penny stocks requires skill. That means you need to study and practice trading before going live. When you do, you'll have mastered patterns and support and resistance.
A NASDAQ penny stock list will have penny stocks that trade on the major exchange. Make sure to take our stock market courses to learn the different ways to trade them as well as other trading strategies such as options.
According to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), a penny stock is any stock trading under $5.00 per share. Penny stocks are also know as small cap stocks.
Most of these companies are relatively new, without a proven track record of success. Coupled with the fact they have a small market capitalization, they are inherently risky for both investors and traders.
However, with a NASDAQ penny stock list, they're regulated. The regulations make them a little safer to trade. Take our penny stock trading strategies when really delves into how to trade them the right way.

In the penny stock arena, we have a few different types available to trade. Have you seen the movie Wolf of Wall Street?
If you haven’t yet, it’s a great movie based on the true story of Jordan Belfort. The movie depicts his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
His flavor of the day was trading over the counter (OTC) penny stocks known as Pink Sheets. Since OTC penny stocks aren’t listed on the NYSE or NASDAQ exchanges the companies don’t have to follow strict rules and regulations.
To be listed on any of the major exchanges requires full transparency with all your financial dealings and your stock must remain over $1.00 per share. Those companies not willing to play by the rules.
Perhaps they’re in bankruptcy filings, will often trade on the OTC market. For these reasons it comes as no surprise, they are easily subjected to corruption.
Another downside of OTC penny stocks is their lack of liquidity which makes them far more susceptible to manipulation. Henceforth they are dangerous to trade.
For the reasons listed above, we focus our attention on stocks trading on the NYSE or NASDAQ exchange. Hence a NASDAQ penny stock list. Make sure to check out our popular pot stocks list for when this sector is running.
When it comes to trading stocks, penny stock or otherwise, I put the majority of my faith in technical analysis and patterns.
I focus on charts, graphs and indicators in an “attempt” to determine the direction of a stock or the beginning, continuation or end of a trend.
Notice how I emphasize attempt. Momentum or penny stock traders look for stocks moving significantly in one direction with high volume.
These traders attempt to ride the momentum wave to their desired profits. Fortunately or unfortunately, the list of indicators available to identify the momentum stocks is endless. As you can see below we have:
Even though many day trading strategies work, they all need to have liquidity and volatility. Personally, I use three criteria to identify NASDAQ penny stocks that have the highest probability of making a run:
Breaking news catalyst. Stocks that go parabolic are those that have massive moves up or down on the same day, and these are the stocks we want to trade. We often see these moves after the news (i.e. positive results in a cancer trial). In a lot of cases, the spikes happen out of the gate and last for about 30 minutes. A lot of times, the gap up occurs in the pre-market, so a good scanner should pick them up.
High Relative Volume. Compares the current volume to normal volume for the same time of day and is displayed as a ration. For example, a stock trading five times its normal volume would have a relative volume of five. As day traders, we want the RVOL at two or higher with a positive catalyst. Coupled with a low float (see below), this stock has the potential to make you money. Generally speaking, almost every winner is high in relative volume that day compared to its average volume.
We provide our members with a lot of helpful tools to make them a better trader. Trade Ideas is one of our most favorite tools that we use. We post their daily gappers each morning here. Make sure to check this page each morning by 9:15 am. Trade Ideas captures the most popular morning movers in the premarket, including NASDAQ penny stocks. It's one of the best tools to use when trading small cap stocks.
Low float stocks are apart of the NASDAQ penny stock list criteria. What is low float and why does it matter?
Low float. Float is the number of shares available to trade on the open market. And the lower, the better because these are the stocks that will move and move quickly because they’re less liquid.
Be warned though, the lower the float, the more potential it has to do something nuts. Another key point to remember is that the parabolic runners are almost always low floats and most likely have some form of manipulation happening.
The smaller the float (5-8M or lower) = less liquidity = more volatility = use LESS SIZE. However, I suggest you stick with a float greater than 300,000 to ensure you’re trading a liquid stock.
But the float should also be less than 20 million since stocks with floats over 20 million typically don’t have the big daily price moves you need.
With a low float, parabolic moves can and will happen. Make sure you have proper stock training so you don't get caught with a loss.
Some may say trading is like gambling as we're trying to predict the future. We don't, or at least we shouldn't just open our computer and place a trade just because we "feel" like it.
No, this is not what we do; we base our judgement on a set of criteria that, when fulfilled, will guide our decisions. Again, assuming that all the boxes are ticked off, we enter the trade; if they aren't, we don't.
It's as simple as that, nothing more, nothing less. Of course, money can be made from NASDAQ penny stocks but understanding and applying the right criteria is vital.
