Before you put your actual money into penny stocks I would try your trading strategies on paper. Write down what you would buy, when you would buy it and then when you would sell it, track your profits/loss and see how you do. If your paper trading is profitable the go ahead and put your money into a broker and start trading. If your strategy is not profitable then it’s time to go back and refine your trading strategy.
