Dividend Builder – June 2020

June is through. Time to share some dividend results with you. 2020 has given us a wild and memorable first half. Here’s to the second half.

Dividend Builder – May 2020

Swing Trading with $300 – Week Two

Time for a recap of my second week at playing around with swing trading. As you may recall from Swing Trading with $300, I am giving myself three hundred dollars to let it rip, play some swing trades, and maybe even dabble in a few day trades. I am having a lot of fun with it so far.
