I put about $500.00 in an online account just to see if I could do Penny Stock, mostly. I went to the experts Penny Picks/Penny 101, gave them my email, and daily they told me the picks that were on the move.
After playing with them, I can say that not one of those stocks (I had so many Penny stocks) were in the green more than one or two days. I have not closed my account yet, but I will this week. As for the experts, I feel they made those stocks move by speaking about those stocks. I have $217.00 that I will pull out. Not one good stock, out of maybe 50 stocks.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
