But for most of the main listed companies on the NYSE and NASDAQ, there could be small clues as they are able to trade after the market closes. Being able to pick up on certain trends can give you a head start for your new, daily penny stocks watch list.
Given the stock market today, there were a few key catalysts that could see a few top penny stocks trading more actively before Thursday’s opening bell.
