2020: August

I knew having a baby would change things, and one of the most obvious things to change is the amount of time I have to write blog posts. As much as I love producing content for Dividend Brothers, it falls pretty low on my list of weekly priorities. To be fair my trading has slowed down quite a bit as well, so I don’t have as much to write about every week either. All that to say, I’m changing the publishing schedule of my trade updates from weekly to monthly. This is a change that I’m quite sure will largely go unnoticed by most.

So in the future, the good readers of DividendBrothers.com can expect a monthly dividend update, a monthly trading update, and an occasional extra blog post (like my most recent one on Cryptocurrencies.)

2020: Week 27 & 28

My wife gave birth to our son on July 4th! Since then I’ve been overwhelmed by happiness, diapers, and sleep deprivation. My weekly updates will probably be a little more sporadic in the coming months. They will definitely be shorter.

I’ve been doing pretty good at reaching my goal of realizing 1% profit every week. My trading account has been hovering around $700, so I’m shooting to earn $7 by every Friday. I honestly, didn’t do much during Week 27, and what I did do, I have almost no memory of, so this is mostly going to be about Week 28.

2020: Week 18 & 19

And just like that, April is over. This month flew by for me, as did the past two weeks. I was called back into work the week before last, and I also interviewed and took a job at a major home improvement chain. This past week I worked full time training and becoming a forklift operator in the Receiving Department. I’ve worked at three separate jobs in the past two weeks. I’m a little tired.

On the trading front, I was able to make a few interesting trades during this time.

2020: Week 17

I had high hopes that this week would provide me with a few opportunities to take off several of my trades. Unfortunately, that did not happen. On the bright side, I got to work with my friend’s tree care company. We removed seven trees in three days. I am sunburned, sore muscled, and feeling better and more clear headed than I have in the several weeks since my regular job was shut down. Thankfully, I also get to go back to work tomorrow.

2020: Week 15

After my second week at home, I think I’m starting to find a rhythm. I start by checking headlines on Finviz.com. It’s good way to get a quick idea of what has happened, what is happening, and maybe a clue as to why the markets are moving the way they are. Next, I open Robinhood and see what the pre-market is doing. This past week it’s been steadily opening higher every day. That’s been a nice change of pace. My long Ford positions have been moving in the right direction.
