Friday 01/03/2020

     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 @ $61.60 (ex-date 1/09) 
    -$ 35.10 invested 2 CXW @ $17.55 (ex-date 1/03)
    -$ 70.25 invested 1 TNA
     $ 39.55 balance to invest

7:05am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $18.22
     1 TNA @ 72.75

     As soon as I bought TNA yesterday, I should have entered a $72.25 order to sell. After-hours trading would have filled that order. 

     I will be gone this afternoon and think if TNA turns positive and hits $72.25 for the day, it will reach my $72.75 strike price.

     If the market stays negative, I might invest my remaining cash

     Today I "captured" the dividend on CXW @$0.44 x 2 shares = $0.88 payable 01/15.  I can now lower my "sell" strike price as I have made $0.44 a share ( I will not lower it today).


7:40am (CST)
Enter "Ext-Day-Limit" BUY order
    2 WRD @ $16.25 (8:37am FILLED)

9:20am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT- Limit" SELL order
     2 WRD @ $16.75

     WDR has a upcoming $0.25 dividend (ex-date 01/10) and we bought at a discount (on a down day). Discount + $0.25 and I believe 0.50 price increase is possible.
