If you are new to pennies, papertrade first so you can get the feel of it! Never, ever hold pennies for too long unless you want to lose your initial investment. Check out Ihub otc/obb alerts. These guys post news about penny companies that post new PR's (Press Release) in the mornings. Get in and get out. Take your profits and wait for the next day. I invest in anywhere between 7 -8 different companies a day hoping to make 25%-50% on each. It may not sound much, but it adds up in a week!
