Friday 01/24/2020

   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  ($0.44 paid 1/15)
    -$ 45.75 invested 1 HP @ $45.75 (ex-date 02/07)
    -$ 22.80 invested 2 ETRN @ $11.40 (ex-date 02/10)
    -$ 37.00 unsettled funds
     $  4.25 balance to invest

7:30am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $17.90 
     1 HP @ $46.75
     2 ETRN @ $11.90

     Not enough cash today to make any stock purchases but all our SELL orders are in. No need to even watch the market but the market is my version of porn, so I can not stay away. lol.

I've been enjoying reading your blog (and in particular this section). I do kind of miss your side notes about the decisions for buying and/or selling different stocks. Hope you'll continue with this section.

Shelley thanks for the comment. Sorry if I missed explaining a buy or sell, I will try to do a better job in the future.
