Friday 01/10/2020

    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  ($0.44 payable 1/15)
    -$ 70.25 unsettled funds
     $ 39.55 balance to invest

7:30am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $17.90 

     WDR went ex-date today but has held up very well until now. My last entry point was $16.25 and exited $16.75. Often the "ex-date pullback" is over done.

Enter "Ext-day-limit" BUY order

     2 WDR @  $16.05 (8:15 CANCELLED)
     2 ANF @  $17.10 (4:59 FILLED)

     Ext-day-limit order filled "after hours",  very small orders (2 in this case) are often filled without moving the needle and they are mingled with larger orders at a higher price but the "limit" guaranties order price.
