It could be that, that was my first idea of giving stocks a try and got me into a brokers office. Anyway from there they gave me a little paper back book that explained the basics of stock trading and buying bonds.
I think at the time I had a thing for Apple Computer. That may have been my first purchase. The broker thought with my amount of money I should stick with one companies stock. I on the other hand wanted to be a part of more than one company. It was fun.
If picking a penny stock gets you in the game I'm thinking win or lose, currency wise, you could learn some valuable lessons. If all else fails at least stick it out until the fun runs out.
Back then it was about ten percent markup on top of your purchase. They took out ten percent when you sold. Then the capital gains taxes were due. No E-Z form at tax time either.
Note: I have never seen a worse time in history to run a business. Tried and true business models that have stood up to the eons are being crushed under strain of the counterfeiters. Globally.
Still... could be fun.

Much better to just pick up 10% - 20% per year with regular stocks.
