  1. where to trade penny stock online

    Great article. If I might also add. If you are an active trader, make sure that you have
    ways to access your account even if you are not
    near your computer or the site is down. Most online
    trading companies give you the option of calling or faxing trades.
    Remember that there may be additional fees associated with these alternate trading
    methods, however.
