The bubble market madness continues. On February 8, there were so many plays I literally couldn’t keep up. The number of hot OTCs was CRAZY!

Just after 2:30 p.m. I looked at my top percent gainer scan and saw 16 hot OTCs up over 50% on the day. Another four OTCs were up between 44% and 47%. And these stocks weren’t thinly traded. Every stock was trading huge volume. Some of them had traded hundreds of millions of shares.

This is NOT a normal market.

But I’ll take it.

Check it out … This is the list of stocks. 15 of the 20 closed up over 50%. None closed less than 37% higher than the previous day. And they’re not even all the stocks I’m watching right now.

Note that this is just a list of stocks to watch. Always do your own research and due diligence before every trade. Learn from this insane action.

This truly is a wild market…

A word of caution before you trade any of these stocks…

Higher and Faster Junk Is Still Junk

I often call myself a glorified history teacher. There’s a reason…

These kinds of runs won’t last forever. Those charts look beautiful. And if you use StocksToTrade, check the social media search tool. You’ll find a ton of so-called “due diligence” on why these stocks should keep running.

(I’m an investor in StocksToTrade and helped design it to fit the penny stocks I love to trade.)

Here’s my take…

Do whatever you need to do to get the most out of this market. If you’re an experienced trader, you know what I mean. If you’re still learning, use this hot market to learn more, faster. In a hot market, you get to see running stocks day after day. Learn from them.

The available research on day trading suggests that most active traders lose money. Fees and overtrading are major contributors to these losses.

A 2000 study called “Trading is Hazardous to Your Wealth: The Common Stock Investment Performance of Individual Investors” evaluated 66,465 U.S. households that held stocks from 1991 to 1996. The households that traded most averaged an 11.4% annual return during a period where the overall market gained 17.9%. These lower returns were attributed to overconfidence.

A 2014 paper (revised 2019) titled “Learning Fast or Slow?” analyzed the complete transaction history of the Taiwan Stock Exchange between 1992 and 2006. It looked at the ongoing performance of day traders in this sample, and found that 97% of day traders can expect to lose money from trading, and more than 90% of all day trading volume can be traced to investors who predictably lose money. Additionally, it tied the behavior of gamblers and drivers who get more speeding tickets to overtrading, and cited studies showing that legalized gambling has an inverse effect on trading volume.

A 2019 research study (revised 2020) called “Day Trading for a Living?” observed 19,646 Brazilian futures contract traders who started day trading from 2013 to 2015, and recorded two years of their trading activity. The study authors found that 97% of traders with more than 300 days actively trading lost money, and only 1.1% earned more than the Brazilian minimum wage ($16 USD per day). They hypothesized that the greater returns shown in previous studies did not differentiate between frequent day traders and those who traded rarely, and that more frequent trading activity decreases the chance of profitability.

These studies show the wide variance of the available data on day trading profitability. One thing that seems clear from the research is that most day traders lose money .
