August Account Activity

Two very exciting events occurred in the month of August:

First, I completed a debt repayment! Last April, I had borrowed $25,900 at 4.25% to purchase shares of Bonterra Energy Corp (BNE.TO). I am happy, it is now paid in full and I did not sell any of my investments to reduce this debt. My only remaining debt is a $19,216.10 line of credit at 2.99% interest. I hope to have it paid in full by April/15 as the interest rate will increase to prime + 2%

Second, I booked a two week all inclusive vacation to Jamaica for April 2, 2015.

As for my trading, things went smoothly. My only adjustment was my short puts on YUM. I rolled to September expiration for a credit. This is the first roll I made since January when I was trading weeklies.

Listed below is my account activity for the month of August.
