APA Purchase and Sale.

        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. 

  A little insight to my thought process, yesterday after I entered  an order for another stock and continued  to search for opportunities  I came across APA but it had already made an upward move and the overall market was getting stronger.

     It tapered off a little right at the end of the day. Today right out of the gate it fell well behind the Dow Jones and I bought it, as the chart below shows, as it started to recover toward the Dow, I was able to sell.

     Yahoo Finance is just one of the free tools I use. A dividend calendar also helps. Dividend paying stocks are not the only stocks that I trade but at least when a stock goes the wrong way on you (and it will happen) you get paid while you wait for it to recover or at least help with the loss when you sale.

     The journey is not straight up but an upward trend.
