Quick question about the NASDAQ, bid, and asking prices.?
I have a quick NASDAQ question. To actually make money trading stocks, does the bid price have to be higher than the asking price? Thanks.
The bid price can not be higher than the asking price
The quoted market is always the highest bid and the lowest asking price.
The bid price is what someone wants to pay for a stock,
the asking price is what someone wants to sell the stock at.
If a buyer wants to buy the stock, they have to reach up to the asking price or enter a higher bid and wait as see what happens
If a seller wants to sell the stock, they have to drop down to the bid price or enter a lower asking price and wait and see what happens
This is just not for NASDAQ it’s for all securities markets.
And to make money you just have to sell the stock at a higher price than you paid for it.

Which penny stock would probably make quick, big money next week? i need help picking stocks.?
i need a list of penny stocks that may multiply my money, because my portfolio is a little bad these days. can i get a good short term penny stock that will get me alot of money?
If your portfolio is bad these days, trading penny stock will only make it worse
Your portfolio is bad probably since you do not know what you’re doing which is supported by your question about trying to find a good short term penny stock
If you knew what you’re doing, you would know that there is no such thing as a good penny stock.
Here’s some website that will help you search for the holy grail

Ive tried this strategy several times and has worked great but I always sell a little to early. In simplest terms sell on it’s way up. First find a few candidates that are very jumpy, one’s that have recently had major swings, just a few to name would be WM, X, BAC, BBY. When you see a 2% – 3% to 5% – 10% depending on the company you are watching climb, that’s when you purchase @ mkt, and sell right afterward. So far I have done this with Zecco, but I hate them now.
They don’t even allow day trading with under 25,000. I have used TdAmeritrade in the past and may switch back to them only because they offer a tool known as trade trigger and with this strategy it could help. Trade trigger would allow you set a trigger to purchase or sell a security as soon as it gets to a higher price, but unlike all the other companies, it will allow you to have a limit buy as soon as it has met it’s trigger. If you buy a stock like ORCD, buying mkt can be horrible. Limiting a few cents below what it is can help you save a lot of money.
