Recently found out that fidelity is now allowing fractional share buying.This will make it harder for me use to robinhood after the recent Outage.I am considering of moving my shares from Robinhood to Td Ameritrade for consolidation . One less account to worry about.
so to try out the fractional share buying i placed 1 orders of AVGO and 1 fidelity fund (FXAIX)
I did it using the App and it was smooth.
Also added 1 share of DFS at $64.63 today. Trying to average down from 76.02.
Nice to see new features added in fidelity account.
I have always wanted to try and learn options ,been reading about them and was willing to try ,Finally i bought 100 shares of SPCE on Feb 20th for 38.05/share. On the same day i sold an covered call for $3.4/contract to sell 100 shares at $58 with an expiration date of 2/28.
Initially i wanted to try with discover shares in my IRA account in TD ameritrade but was denied .
Now this a speculative buy ,that i have been doing since last month ,I bought and sold TSLA,SHOP etc.
Now since the Market has tanked since i wrote the call i Kept the money $340 as the trading price didn’t even cross $40 ,but my investment is in loss since then.Yes I recovered little bit by writing the call.
I have been trying to see if i could do T or Another SPCE call in future.
