It’s a crazy market out there right now … You need the best tool to find penny stock breaking news.

In just the past few months, we saw a huge market drop as the coronavirus pandemic started. Then we had a massive rebound as the Federal Reserve stepped in to stimulate the economy.

It’s been volatile, to say the least. And for many day traders, this volatility has been awesome. (Need help with all this volatility? Get my NO-COST “Volatility Survival Guide” here.)

I’ve made more profits trading in the past few months than I did in all of 2019.**

That’s partly due to the sheer number of trading setups right now. But it’s also because of an incredible new tool I’m using: the StocksToTrade Breaking News Chat.

This new chat feature helps me keep up with all the hottest, market-moving news stories popping out each day.

I use this tool every day. It’s been so useful to me that I now consider it an essential piece of my trading.

Let’s take a closer look…

How to Find Penny Stock Breaking News

As active stock traders, we all want to spot the future biggest percent movers before the rest of the market.

The simplest way to locate stocks that are about to move 10%, 20%, 50% or more in price is by catching a news story as soon as it’s released … It’s all about that penny stock breaking news.

Sounds simple, right? Well, there’s actually one big problem…

There are so many stocks traded in the U.S. every day. And that means tons of news to filter through. That’s before you even figure out your trade entry and exit points.

But it’s not just that. Most news stories are almost useless. A lot of them are just fluff with almost no effect on stock prices. Just reading them can be a waste of your time…

So how do you find the news that matters? Especially when the penny stock niche is full of so many sketchy companies?

Imagine if you had a team stock market pros who could delve into all the breaking news stories for you. And imagine if they alerted you to the most exciting, actionable, and price-moving stories…

That’s exactly what the StocksToTrade Breaking News Chat Room does…

The StocksToTrade Breaking News Chat Room

The Breaking News Chat Room is run by two former Wall Street pros who have years of experience.

This team watches all day for penny stock breaking news. They stay on top of company-related news stories and search for the most promising news stories that have the potential to push a stock price up or down.

When they find something solid, they alert the chat room in real time.

So you can spend less time reading useless news stories. Instead, you can focus on the charts, your watchlists, and your trade plans. (Get my FREE watchlist here.)

It’s not a robotic news feed — it’s an active chat room. You can interact with the analysts, ask questions, and even discuss things with other StocksToTrade members.

Think how useful spotting the most promising news stories FAST every trading day can be … Now go get your 14-day trial of the Breaking News chat for just $17.

How Have I Been Using the Breaking News Chat?

I want you to understand that this chat is the best tool I use right now.

It’s the perfect tool to use in the super-volatile markets we’re experiencing right now. This tool is helping me find new plays, come up with new trade ideas, and see where the market action is. It’s also helping me see where the action could be next.

Penny stock breaking news and this chat room are directly responsible for several of my recent trades…

Take my recent trade in Genius Brands International Inc (NASDAQ: GNUS)…

Prior to being alerted to this ticker in chat, this stock was pretty dead. That was until the company issued a shareholder letter on May 13 … and the Breaking News Chat analysts picked up on it.

I actually traded this one several times. On one trade, I dip bought the stock before it made a morning spike. I entered the trade and rode the awesome short squeeze for a quick $3,360.**

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 .
