February Account Activity

I am back from a fabulous vacation and gradually getting into my trading routine. Prior to my departure, I bought shares of TD Bank (TD) and Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM). I purchased XOM using margin money and sold calls to cover the interest charges. I dislike borrowing money for any reason; however, the opportunity was golden.

During my vacation, I had free Wi-Fi a few times and was able to login to my account and do a small amount of market research. I was too busy to place trades and the time difference made it difficult. Although I was only gone for 24 days, it felt like I had been away from the market for a very long time.

It is always refreshing to see a stable stream of dividend income flowing into my account

Listed below is my account activity for the month of February:
