    There should be a perfectly good explanation for that. I am interested in some stocks with "." and i notice we are not allowed, why?

    OTC and Pink Sheet stocks are much harder to manage than "regular" stocks. We get our quotes from Yahoo via their free quote API, and they don't provide information like symbol changes and so on. For that reason, on this site .PK and .OB stocks are specifically not allowed. Option quotes also have a "." in the symbol, and we're working on making options trading available but it probably won't be this year.

    So that's the basic explanation as to why "dot" stocks and cheap stocks under $2 are not allowed here.
