Tuesday 01/14/2020

     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  ($0.44 payable 1/15)
    -$ 34.20  unsettled funds
     $ 75.60 balance to invest

7:15am (CST)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     2 WPG @ $4.40
     1 VZ @ $62.15
     2 CXW @ $17.90 

     Yesterday I was watching TNA closely and missed my change to buy HP @ $45.75 shortly after the market opened (my cash would not just allow me to just entry a buy on both stocks).


     The last 2 trades for HP post-market (EXT) were for $46.00 but pre-market it has trades @ $46.25.


Enter "Limit-EXT" BUY order

    1 HP @ $45.75


This is what the order looks like. Our order is in GREEN and shows "0" because it is less than 100 shares. Notice it says + 1 LMT.  On the "bid" side you see our order with the conformation number for that order trying to BUY.
