Bucket Shop
Full Definition

These are brokerage firms with dubious reputations. Many of these are fly-by-night operations, consisting of many brokers making cold calls to investors. These shops specialize in low priced "penny stocks", which they sell to one fool and then to a greater fool. The brokers may hop from shop to shop, just ahead of federal regulators.
