I didn't lose money, but I am new to this and naive. I asked how to enter a stop loss, but the rep didn't tell me it was not available for a penny stock. In my ingorance I participated in a rally on a company in development with no revenue. They have a good story and I wish them well, but as I watched I knew an unknown price target might trigger a large selloff and cause a loss if I was not glued to the screen. I made a quick $1000 but I now have the guidance of this newsletter to avoid stupid risk taking in future.
