    A question asked every day by investors and the financial news media is “Will the market open up or down today?” The Pre-Market Indicator is an index of trading activity based on pre-market open prices. The PMI was developed to help gauge pre-market trends leading into the trading day as a predictor of opening prices.

    The PMI is based on stocks being bought and sold during premarket hours and is used as a gage for market opening. It is primarily based on supply and demand -- volume.

    You should try with Penny Stocks Trading (you can find more info here: )

    Penny stocks, also known as cent stocks in some countries, are common shares of small public companies that trade at low prices per share.

    I've been subscribing to this PennyStock web site for about a year now and have loved the objective advice they give. He really does look for quality stocks and I've made some pretty nice profits on a lot of his suggestions. Being still fairly new to investing I have been dabbling a lot in penny stocks to try and grow my account. I may not have a big account, but it's a lot bigger than it was a year ago. On just one of Nathan's picks this year I managed to make my investment back ten-fold! Be careful! Penny stocks are notoriously risky but if you follow the right method the risk is almost 0. I suggest to invest only little money first and then reinvest the profits. This is the site I'm using:

    Hope it helps.

    This penny stock service has years of proven experience. Ultimately it is the best service for beginners to use

    You will have to wait between 3 and 10 days to get into the system in most cases. When I signed up it took 8 days. I wished it was faster, but if you can wait a week or two to start earn life changing money than you will have what it takes to make it in this business.
