I'm going to allow a rare glimpse inside my mind now. (Run while the running's good, for anyone faint of heart here!) Seriously, though, I have been like a wishy-washy yo-yo when it comes to penny stocks. I would looooove to play around with it but it would be like a hobby because I don't see very much potential investment return here... am I wrong about that? Then the next thought is that I have serious interest in real estate and precious metals... stocks scare me a tad, and penny stocks even more. Third... well, I really am not wanting to mess with needing a broker just to manipulate what I want to do with my penny stocks. Is that needed? I'll start a new thread about why it scares me and hopefully someone can put my mind at ease about this whole process.
