It's trading Monday, get ready for action in my online future trading brokerage

Usually I post about my trade made inside my online future trading brokerage of almost in real time, but this time, I was not able to do so. Here's my online stock market trading for today:

I sold 100 stocks of Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS). Canadian bank stocks are not for me, but I still own more than 100 stocks of Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) inside my stock investment portfolio. The amount earn this way was of 5 675$ and I immediately continue by buying 100 stocks of Capital Power Income L.P. (CPA.UN) for an investment value of 1 969$, 100 stocks of Exchange Income Corporation (EIF) for an investment value of 1 989$ and and 300 stocks of Rogers Sugar Inc. (RSI) for an invetsment value of 1 674.99$. I like to trade commodities online, among other.

It's been quite a busy Monday. I also had called RBC financial group online banking about the selling of RBC O'Shaughnessy Canadian Equity Fund. Selling mutual fund is never easy because you never who at which price your going to sell your units. I remember that from my sell of my Crestsreet Alternative Energy Fund from the alternative energy mutual funds family that I sold last year. According to the RBC expert I talk to, the best way to sell mutual fund is to call before 4PM . The representative told me to take a look at the biggest holder of the mutual fund and if I see if they are on the high during the day. And than, if it's the case, to call back, but to call back before 4PM. If not, the sell order will go for the next business day, without a pulse of the stock market investment. I will keep an eyed on the online stock market investing tomorrow and if I see the Toronto stock exchange market is up again, I will call RBC and place my sell order for the RBC O'Shaughnessy Canadian Equity Fund.

It's never fun to sell an investment but in this case, not to say that "it's all about money" (like I explain on my dada sentence on top of my blog), but this time, it's all about reaching a dividend goal.

Also, I ask to the RBC rep how much will it be to transfer money from RBC to a commodity trading broker account hold outside the RBC channel. It's quite expensive, its 50$ per transfer type. So let's say you transfer your TFSA own at RBC to TD Waterhouse, that will cost 50$. It will cost you another 50$ to transfer your RRSP money from RBC to TD Waterhouse online. I know TD Waterhouse give 100$ or something alike whenever you bring in a what I remember is 10 000$ into their service. But I just don't remember. To trade stocks online with TD Waterhouse securities is SO EASY. That's the reason I would be willing to transfer everything into my online future trading brokerage hold with TD Waterhouse online.

I own my units of RBC O'Shaughnessy Canadian Equity Fund inside my TFSA. It doesn't worth it to pay 50$ for a TFSA transfer so I am just going to cash out the money outside the TFSA. I don't really have a choice and at this point, the TFSA is just not made for me. I explain that previously. This is because I decide to open a margin account and do margin borrowing. I have to say, buying stocks on margin is one of the easiest thing. It can be quite addictive (that's how I got enroll in more than 60k of debt... yeah.. lol).

TFSA holding are not being consider for margin investment. So bye-bye TFSA. But just for now.

Because yes, TFSA worth it, but only if you are extremely good at managing your money and, to tell the true, I like investing too much to be able to say that yeah, I got it all the way. Because no, I don't have it all. Well, not yet.

I am not saying that any of this are the best moves ever or that I am investing in the best companies ever. All of this is an ultimate try to increase my dividend income. Among the way, I also try to bring diversification in. Once everything will be completed, I will be satisfied. The only thing left to do is watch the dividend income hit my cash account or DRIP, depending of the admisibility. My dividend income still registered under a DRIP, despite the fact that it will be soon exceeding the 7 000$. I have to say, it's quite tempting to just cash in the dividend, but a DRIP, even just 1 or 2 extra stocks per month or quarter,will make a difference on the long run.

I could had wait for Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) to gain more value, but I just couldn't wait. I had to sell another 100 stocks and I wanted to get the plan all set up now! Right now! Yeahh!

So at this time, there's only a couple of online stock investing missing from my dividend team:

200 stocks of Colabor Group Inc. (GCL) for an approximate value of 2 392$
Dividend yield: 9%
Dividend income: 215.20$

200 stocks of Veresen Inc. (VSN) for an approximate value of 2 566$
Dividend yield: 7.70%
Dividend income: 200$

200 stocks of TDb Split Corp. (XTD) for an approximate value of 1 386$
Dividend yield: 8.70%
Dividend income: 120$

147 stocks of Provident Energy Ltd. (PVE) for an approximate value of 1 181$
Dividend yield: 6.90%
Dividend income: 79.38$

Those last couple of investments worth together more than 7 000$. I don't know when exactly I will be investing in them. But time will tell. It will be whenever I feel like it.

I always have that sell limit order for 500 stocks at 9.60$ of Sprott Inc. (SII) that is open. I am not in a rush to sell this one but I wonder if Sprott Inc. (SII) will ever hit the 9.60$ ever again on the Toronto stock exchange market.
