After a month of trending downwards, UCL stock saw an incredible jump in trading after markets closed yesterday. That pushed shares higher throughout the night and saw the stock kick of trading today much higher than Monday’s close.

While there’s no reason for the recent movement, it is worth highlighting that UCL is firmly in penny stock territory. That means it’s susceptible to manipulation from retail traders. These traders collect online to plan out pumps of shares before later dumping the stock. That results in massive gains followed by quick crashes.

It’s likely that’s what we’re seeing today as shares of UCL stock are experiencing heavy trading. As of this writing, more than 8 million shares of the stock are on the move. That’s an immense increase over the company’s daily average trading volume of only about 179,000 shares.
