There are many listing requirements by the NASDAQ, one of which is that a stock cannot be trading under $1 for too long.

How To Trade NASDAQ Stocks Under $1?
Trading as opposed to investing is a completely different game.
When you are investing in a stock, you are betting on the company's fundamentals. You hope the company will do well in the next 5 to 10 years, so you can quadruple your initial investment.
Trading, on the other hand, doesn't care about company fundamentals. Traders bet on the short term price action of stocks and utilizing tools like technical analysis to find profitable trades. They buy and sell a stock in a matter of minutes to a few weeks. The goal is to profit from price fluctuations instead of company fundamentals.
Trading may seem easy, but it is actually very hard. In fact, most traders lose money. Many beginners get into trading hoping to get rich quickly which is the absolutely wrong mindset. Trading takes consistent practice and learning just like any other skill.
It takes about 10,000 hours for someone to become an expert in any field, trading is no different. If you are not willing to put in this kind of hours into learning, you should not be trading in the first place.
