Why the penny stocks can't sustain any meaningful rally recently?

  1. Market talk is that total contra losses for traders and retailers since August is about $200m.
  2. Many accounts are still suspended, waiting for contra losses to be settled.
  3. Many margin accounts’ value has dropped more than 30-50%.
  4. Loss of confidence in the market to sustain any rise; either staying out of the market completely or trading at very much smaller sizes.

  6. Many people are on holiday.

Conclusion is penny stock market is very dry now - no liquidity.
