  1. Do you know of anyone (or any group) that specializes in trading 5-letter stocks? Things like APCVZ, REEDR, WAMUQ, etc. Sometimes these things make huge intraday moves, and I have no idea what they even are, let alone how to interpret their moves. One time I bought APCVZ only to realize after an hour of research that it was a “debenture,” prompting a sale and an oath to never trade anything with five letters until I at least understand how to pronounce its name :-). Do you know any resources or people that do well in this tiny niche of trading?

    Some examples of 5-letter stock endings meanings:
    D: A new issue of an existing stock. (Often the result of a reverse split.)
    E: Delinquent in required filings with the SEC as determined by the NASD
    Q: In bankruptcy proceedings
    R: Rights
    S: Beneficial interest
    Y: ADR (American Depositary Receipt)
    Z: Miscellaneous situations

  2. if you have a filter ,scan or simply know a stock is a pump and dump, you know the stock will go down, what will tip a trader off that the stock will go down? what do you look for on an intraday chart?

    1. For true pump & dumps the volume and an understanding of who the pumpers are and how they work are more important than any technical analysis.
