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.

            $457.40 self-imposed May trading limit.
            2% of $457.40 = $9.15 May profit needed. 

   1. $457.40 + $0.62 VZ dividend = $458.02

   4.
   5.
   6. $458.02 + $10.80  4 CC profit = $468.82
   7. $468.82 + $ 2.50  2 SPXL profit = $471.32
   8. $471.32 + $ 1.00  2 MUR profit = $472.32

 11.
 12.
 13.
 14. $472.32 + $ 1.80  4 MUR profit = $474.12

25. Market Closed

27.
28.
29.

     $488.32 May ending balance
     $457.40 May starting balance
     $  30.92 May profits

     $30.92 / $457.40 = 6.75% ROI



                                       S & P 500 index + 2.7%
                                       DOW Jones + 2.7%

    My account out-performed the overall market this month.

               $488.32 May ending balance
               $  50.00 June $50 contribution
               $538.32 self-imposed June trading limit.

               $538.32 x 2% = $10.77 June profit needed

Friday 05/29/2020

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.

            $457.40 self-imposed May trading limit.
            2% of $457.40 = $9.15 May profit needed. 

   $457.40 May trading limit
  -$   8.48 invested 2 WPG @ $4.24 ($0.25 paid 03/16)
  -$ 61.60 invested 1 VZ @ $61.60 ($0.62 paid 05/01)
  -$ 35.10 invested 2 CXW @ $17.55  ($0.88 paid 04/15)
  -$ 45.75 invested 1 HP @ $45.75 ($0.71 payable 06/01)
  -$ 22.80 invested 2 ETRN @ $11.40 ($0.30 paid 05/21)
  -$ 30.15 invested 10 WPG @ $3.015 ($1.25 paid 03/16)
  -$ 14.60 invested 2 BRY @ $7.30 ($0.24 paid 04/15)
  -$ 53.00 invested 1 TNA @ $53.00
   $185.72 balance to invest 
   
7:10am (CDT)
Enter "GTC-EXT-Limit" SELL orders
     12 WPG @ $3.40 ( 2+10=12 ) ???
     1 VZ @ $62.90 
     2 CXW @ $17.90 
     1 HP @ $46.75
     2 ETRN @ $11.90
     2 BRY @ $7.60
     1 TNA @ $59.25

    
Enter "ext-limit-day" BUY orders
     2 SPXL @ $37.75  

UPDATE 9:15am (CDT)
Enter "limit-day" BUY order
     4 MUR @ $12.10 (FILLED 9:32am)

UPDATE 10:00am (CDT)
bought.....4 MUR @ $12.10


     The S&P futures are down but at 7:10am (CDT) in pre-market trading SPXL was still trading higher than yesterdays close. That does not make a lot of sense.
