Thursday 10/24/2019

     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. 

8:28am (CDT)
     The proceeds from my trade on Tuesday turned to cash overnight and I start with:

     $52.79 cash

     $50 dollar (monthly starting balance) is what I will try to invest. I prefer to keep my profits until the first of next month and add them and my $50 monthly contribution to form next months starting trade balance.

     I have my eye on trading TRGP, HP or MET if they pull back a little.

9:18am(CDT)
     Entered "Limit Order", 1 share HP @ $38.40.

9:20am (CDT
    Order filled.
     $50.00
    -$38.40
      $11.60 available to trade.

    HP (Helmerick & Payne)
 
   
     is down 2% for the day.
     
     I entered a  "Good Till Canceled (GTC)" order for $39.22 (yesterdays close). I will be leaving in a few minutes and do not want to miss a 2% profit should it happen.

6:30pm (CDT)
     Returned home to find my HP @ $39.22 "limit order" was filled at 12:49 (CDT).
this is from my "Sink or Swim" trading platform.


$39.22 sold 1 HP @ $39.22
$38.40 bought 1 HP @ $38.40
$    .82 (2.13 % ROI), 1.64% on $50 October balance.

     This was a "day-trade" but my last was on the 17th (and has fallen off the list) so this is just (1) of (3) that is allowed in the 5 day rolling window.
