This message is displayed to warn Zecco Trading customers that their penny stock liquidation order triggered an “illiquid requirement”. These orders must be placed through a broker (by phone) at which point the broker will inform the customer of the risks associated with these transactions.
More info on this topic can be found in this FAQ:
Guys, Zecco is not a broker-dealer. Penson is, so Zecco is warning their customers about stock that has been moved to a listing in OTC that requires a call to complete the transaction...since it can't be done online, anywhere....
Just for clarity:
Zecco Trading is a fully licensed online brokerage, member FINRA/SIPC.
Definition of 'Brokerage'

What online brokerage will do penny stocks now? Any recommendations?
Zecco, this kind of change would have been much more effective in a notice to customers. I don't understand why we must continue to sift through the discussion board for this type of information.
