3 Penny Stocks to Watch During Today’s Market Crash
With the broader market taking a dive during midday trading, many penny stocks are still showing potential. And, when there are larger market crashes it presents a sizable number of opportunities for investors to use as an advantage.
While it may seem easy to benefit from market crashes, there are a few things that all penny stock traders should know. First and foremost is having a complete understanding of your trading strategy. This can be broken down into two main categories; short-term and long-term trading.
On one hand, short-term traders could have an easier time making money with penny stocks during a market crash. This is due to the rate at which stocks move during heightened momentum in the market.
On the other hand, those who trade in the long term may want to look for devalued assets that could have potential in the coming months. Regardless, a market dip presents potential to both types of investors. The next thing to consider is why the market crashed.
Why Is the Stock Market Down Today?
Today, the reason behind the dip comes as the yields on the benchmark 10-year note jumped up by around 5 points to over 1.54%. This is its highest level in a few months. The Chief Market Analyst at the trading platform IG, Chris Beauchamp, stated that “The prospect of higher energy prices, fueling inflation, and rises in bond yields appear to be pre-empting tighter monetary policy by central banks, have prompted widespread selling across global stock markets.”
While there are still winners today like Digital Brands Group Inc. (NASDAQ: DBGI) which pushed up by over 36%, there’s no doubting the lacking confidence in the next few months. However, with October only a few days away, we could see the effects of a clean slate on the stock market. Considering all of this, let’s take a look at three penny stocks to check out during today’s market crash.
