Investing in stock markets has been largely driven by several guiding factors that ultimately influence the buying decision. When it comes to putting the money in highly volatile assets, such penny stocks, cryptocurrencies and other market-tradable securities that have a high risk profile, people only look at the upside of the investment following which they end up incurring heavy losses.
However, many individuals have made a good amount of money by investing in penny stocks and cryptocurrencies, riding high on the massive spikes in the market prices of these instruments. The element of money making by investing in these assets is highly dependent on the time of your entry and exit.
There are penny stocks that have lost a sizable amount of their respective market capitalisation, but have bounced back sharply, superseding previous highs. A largely similar case is with crypto-assets as almost all the so-called cryptocurrencies have spiralled like anything, especially during the pandemic era. But, there has been a regular correction in the indicative prices of crypto-assets from the last month.
