Just want to make a note that a trade was made today.
Noting this down I hope will help me give good focus on what has been done and why. In this situation it was coming to the ex dividend date for AT&T (6th of January = the day after tomorrow).
Security = T (AT&T)
Position = Long 500 shares
Entry Price = $ 34.07
Total Cost = $ 17,044.99
Just following up to mention I picked up a second 500 share lot at $ 34.18 (total cost on this $ 17099.99)
Total Cost = $ 34,144.98
Ideally will close the position today.
Tuesday Jan 5th 2015, 8.55PM Paris time – the position was closed out. Sold the 1K shares at 34.59 (amount after comissions = $ 34,579.37) for a gain of $ 434.39.
Was not confortable holding this position with the volatility we are seeing so prefer to close this and move on..
thanks for stopping by,
