   This post is a continuation of the $50 a month stock challenge I started October 14, 2019.  Click on, "No Commission Stock Trades", on the right side of the page to read from the start.

I start the month with $214.98 to invest and that will be my self-imposed trading limit for the whole month. 

     $214.98 x 2% = $4.30 profit needed.

     $214.98 self-imposed January trading limit.
    -$   8.48 invested 2 WPG @ $4.24
    -$ 61.60 invested 1 VZ @ $61.60  ($0.61 payable 02/03
    -$ 35.10 invested 2 CXW @ $17.55  ($0.44 payable 1/15)
    -$ 45.75 invested 1 HP @ $45.75 (ex-date 02/07)
     $ 45.75 unsettled funds
     $ 18.30 balance to invest

7:05am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $17.90 
     1 HP @ $46.75

      Again, I bought HP knowing the ex-date (for the dividend) is 02/07. I had the money to buy 2 shares yesterday but I did not because 2 x $45.75 = $91.50 and that represents over 42% of my monthly trading limit.  No need for that much exposure on multiple shares of one stock.

HP over night trade


   This post is a continuation of the $50 a month stock challenge I started October 14, 2019.  Click on, "No Commission Stock Trades", on the right side of the page to read from the start.

  Wednesday 01/15,   I purchased 1 HP @ $45.75 and today 01/16 sold it for $46.75.

     $46.75 sold
    -$45.75 buy
     $1.00 profit (2.28% ROI)

     I ended up buying it back for the same $45.75. Not a bad little profit to be right back where I started the day.

     We sold HP near the high of the day and bought it back for the same price we had previously paid for it. Unfortunately, not near the bottom of the day, but we put $1.00 in our pocket and right back where we were had we not traded today.

     2 CXW @ $17.90 
     1 HP @ $46.50

Today CXW paid $0.44 a share X 2 shares = $0.88.  Love dividend paying stocks, getting paid to wait for the price to recover.

     I am walking out the door right now but hope to be back by noon.


Enter "Ext-Day-Limit" BUY order

     1 HP @$45.75 (9:15am FILLED}

11:30am (CST)
     I am back and see that my BUY 1 HP @ $45.75 order was filled. HP has an ex-date of 02/07/2020 paying $0.71. I have enter a  "GTC-EXT-LIMIT" SELL order @ $46.50. That would be a $0.75 profit as opposed to holding for the dividend of $0.71.

Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $17.90 

     Yesterday I was watching TNA closely and missed my change to buy HP @ $45.75 shortly after the market opened (my cash would not just allow me to just entry a buy on both stocks).


     The last 2 trades for HP post-market (EXT) were for $46.00 but pre-market it has trades @ $46.25.


Enter "Limit-EXT" BUY order

    1 HP @ $45.75


This is what the order looks like. Our order is in GREEN and shows "0" because it is less than 100 shares. Notice it says + 1 LMT.  On the "bid" side you see our order with the conformation number for that order trying to BUY.
