still make big moves without spending thousands upon thousands of dollars.

As their name suggests, penny stocks are stocks that can be bought at lower prices, with most experts agreeing
that all stocks whose price is under $5 are to be considered penny stocks. They are also only traded on certain
exchanges, such as Pink Sheets and OTCB. Due to their low prices, even a modest trader can purchase enough penny
stocks to make a killing on the market.
Unfortunately, penny stocks do come with certain risk. For example, they are not as liquid as more traditional
stocks, meaning that traders sometimes have troubles buying or selling penny stocks. In addition to this, the penny
stock market tends to be quite volatile, meaning that it is often to incur significant losses before one is able to
act on the latest market movements.
That being said, penny stocks are definitely an attractive concept and potentially a very lucrative market for
smart and patient traders, especially if they have brokers they can trust.
The binary option market is arguably the easiest market to invest in and it requires no formal education. Of
course, this does not mean you should just start throwing money at binary option trading platforms, wasting your
money in the process.
With binary options, you are effectively purchasing call options which mature after a very brief period of time
and which can have only one of two possible outcomes – in the money or out of money. More precisely, when
purchasing a binary option, you are deciding whether a certain commodity will be worth more or less than the price
that was established at the time of purchasing the option.
For example, you purchase a call option that the value of a company's stock will be worth over $50 at its
maturity date. If it ends up being worth over $50, you are in the money and you earn a fixed amount of money,
usually many times the invested sum. At no time do you own any stocks and you are essentially predicting value of
certain commodities after a certain amount of time has passed.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when trading in binary options is to find a reputable,
regulated trading platform, like for instance 24Option, the largest platform of its kind.
