Similar to the overall market trend, the Covid-19 pandemic is the most significant factor affecting blue chips and penny stocks. People have noticed new variants of the disease around the world, giving rise to fears that the pandemic has not yet ended.
In response to these fears, there has been an increase in volatility and an increase in uncertainty. While blue-chip stocks have remained flat in recent weeks, several under-$1 stocks have done well. Penny stocks do not adhere to rules, so it’s relatively easy to find decent gains on an intraday basis.
A penny stock is often regarded as a speculative investment due to its volatile trading trend. A penny stock purchase is meant to profit from a potential change in the stock market trend.
Penny stocks have an unpredictable nature, making them always risky investments. For this reason, understanding penny stock volatility is crucial.
It is important for investors to conduct research on relevant investments before making a decision. Understanding the metrics, fundamentals, and developments of penny stocks can make penny stock investments as lucrative as Fortune 500 investments.
