I haven't been playing the penny stocks for about four to five years but, back then the message boards were very active, now i don't see anybody on them anymore...does anyone know why?

I used to use Yahoo message board got a lot info on new or old stocks. Even though i new everything came out of a boiler room some was very entertaining and helpful and even made a lot of money.

I feel in order to play penny stocks you need message boards.

Hello to all

Main reason ( in my opinion ) for penny stocks not being what they were is that they came up with the frequent trading rule which says unless you have 25k in your brokerage account your trading is very limited. Kids cant start with there lunch money and day trade.

Yes the board has been all but dead lately. Still gets a couple thousand lurkers every day though. Site is still OK and getting about 7,000 unique per day. Fair Value and Chart pages main draw.

I think the growing popularity of options trading is a big reason penny stocks are not nearly as popular as they were 10-15 years ago. When you really sit back an think about it, many of the bagpile, garbage stocks we traded here back in the day were like buying way OTM options with no expiration date.

Well the off topic board should be THRIVING with so much to talk about.
Posted by raybond on :
you are right cash the off target should be running like a raped ape but its not. If other members feel like I do , just sick of politics, they don't post.
Posted by raybond on :
Hey cash why don't you post something maybe you can get the blood flowing again
Posted by NR on :
I dont play pennies anymore, just invest in stocks over 5$, got tired of bs bagholding. I still lurk the off-topic every few months but most of the veterans here stopped posting a long time ago so I dont frequent this board as often as I used to. I think maybe everyone took themselves and their political opinions way too seriously, got mad, and left.
