I already had a few holdings as I started this journey. I currently own 500 shares of Ford Motor Co (F) at a buy in price of $14.25. I’ve owned these shares for the entire year and have been upside down on this buy almost the entire time. I’m stubborn and unwilling to accept a loss, so I’ve held on to these.
I also purchased 200 shares of Netflix (NFLX) last week at $85.56. I had sold some weekly call options last week to help add some additional revenue and still owned the shares to start the week. This morning NFLX had a nice pop and I sold the shares at $91.90, for a total gain on the trade of $1,268.
Mid-day Monday I purchased 100 shares of Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3x Shares (NUGT) for $124.55. I also closed out this trade today, selling all 100 shares for $127.13 and a total gain of $237 (after fees).
All in all, not a bad start. We’re up $1,500 to start.
I’ll keep you posted when we make our next trade.
