Thursday 11/07/2019

     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. 

Monthly target of 2% = $2.07 - $0.73 (made) = $1.34 needed.

 $103.61 (self-imposed monthly trading limit)
    -$ 41.15 invested in HP (ex-date 11/7)
    -$ 36.00 invested in IVZ (ex-date 11/8)
     $ 26.46 total
    -$  0.00 unsettled funds
     $ 26.46 to invest

     Today is HP dividend ex-date, I captured the $0.71 dividend but will not record it until it is payed (dividend pay-date) 12/2.
     That will help my December profit totals, but does nothing for my November totals. If I sell HP above my $41.15 cost, the profit will be recorded upon sale.

     Tomorrow is IVZ ex-date with a $0.31per share dividend if held, If I show a profit that meets or exceeds the dividend I will sell it today. Paid $18 per share so anything at or about $18.31.

7:30am (CST)
     Enter "GTC-EXT" order 1 share HP @ $41.75
              "GTC-EXT" order 2 shares IVZ @ $18.54

     Market wants to open to the up side (futures to the plus side). Sell on up days when you have profits. Over time the market trend is higher but that does not mean tomorrow will be (or even later today). No one ever went broke taking a profit.
