So I'm rather new to trading and I'm mostly interested in micropenny stocks. I'm open to any and all advice (stock related), picks and tips. Any good readings i should pick up? Also to anyone who has an Iphone: what, if any, app do you use? I have a few but nothing shows enough decimal places. So a stock that is trading at $0.0004 will show as $0.00 Any recomendations for one that shows you the actual price of the stock?
Thanks in advance. John

The Toni Turner series and a couple others have really helped me the most in establishing a set of rules that I stick by - and will not break. Protecting your capital is always #1.

Toni Turner “Short Term Trading in the New Stock Market”
“The Complete Turtle Trader” by Michael W. Covel about the Richard Dennis story. Pretty amazing.
Oh and BTW - most are available through the public library system. I know - I'm cheap!
As for the micros? Unless you know what you're doing you're prolly just filling some scam artist' pockets. There are PLENTY!!! of penny stocks still in the dirt that may have a decent chance to make it back to the big boards, Do the research.

The Turtles is a great story and lesson--but you need more capital than most starting in pennies have available. For that matter, Turner's method's require more, too. But for "philosophy" you can get more out of Turner.

For inspiration, the Turtle story is wondermous.
Yes, Richard Dennis and his partner were certainly an inspiration. I also agree, starting capital is also important, otherwise, as I did, you may "gamble" more than make better decisions on what to buy and then end up losing. Toni puts some good rules in place but building the phsychological mind set to practice and use the rules takes time. There are also plenty of e-books and sites that help with learning the technicals. Ace put many here.
