ZVTK & MCLN look very promising.

I used Scottrade to buy these, but in order to buy penny stocks you have to fund your account through a bank transfer or send them a check.

My favorite brokers are;
Interactive Brokers

I use ThinkOrSwim mostly. Great platform with exceptional charting. Interactive Brokers is cheaper, platform is very hard to learn. Tradestation has a good reputation (not as god as TOS).

You can trade penny stocks on any of them. They won’t even ask you the most important questions….. like;
Do you have at least 5 years successful trading experience in larger cap stocks?
Do you have exceptional trading money management skills?
Are you exceptionally good with technical analysis?

If you haven’t heard of these brokers;
They are cositantly rated in the top 5 best on-line brokers.. year after year by Barron’s Magazine.

Never place a trade unless you’re using a limit order (with any stocks below $ 10).
If you don’t know what a limit order is…. you’re years away from being ready to trade penny stocks.

RHB Investment Bank’s http://www.rhbinvest.com would be the best site to trade Malaysian stocks. Only site with stock screener for Bursa Malaysia to screen for Penny stocks.
