Surprise! I sold a stock!
The reason that I document the app changes and updates is because I am very "invested" in this app. I waited a long time for it to become available, and wish I could have been using this app ever since I heard about it. I like seeing how things change over time, and I hope that this app only ever changes for the better. If the app ever puts in advertisements, user fees, or trade commissions, I'll be one sad Mitch.
I woke up this morning to a notification on my phone that my 1 share of Waste Management (WM) had been sold. I was surprised to see this notification, then remembered I set a limit order for this stock.
Earlier in the month, I set a limit order ("Good Till Canceled") to sell WM stock at $54.00. Today was the first day since I placed that order that WM stock traded at $54.00 or higher than $54.00. I should have kept up on my orders, because I was considering keeping WM full time. I recently read WM raised the amount of their dividend. I'm not mad by any means, I set the limit order to sell above what I bought for the stock, so since it processed, I didn't "lose" any money.
I have another "Good Till Canceled" limit order for OHI stock. It'd be great if that would sell soon!
