JX Luxventure (NASDAQ:JXJT) stock is rocketing higher on Thursday alongside heavy trading of the Chinese tourism services company’s shares.

This increased trading activity has more than 11.6 million shares of JXJT stock changing hands as of this writing. That’s a massive surge in trading volume compared to the Chinese company’s daily average of only about 6,000 shares.

Investors will note that this movement comes without any clear news from JX Luxventure. However, it also bears mentioning that Chinese stocks have been incredibly volatile recently.

Adding to this is JXJT being a penny stock. That comes from its low daily average trading volume, prior closing price of just $1.22 and market capitalization of only $7.4 million.

Why That Matters to JXJT Stock

Penny stocks often find themselves to be targeted by retail traders looking to pump and dump shares. That’s due to how easily their stock prices can be manipulated due to the low barrier to entry.

If that’s what’s going on with JXJT stock today, investors will want to steer clear. While the stock is rising right now, it might not be long before it comes crashing back down.

JXJT stock is up 380.2% as of Thursday morning.
