About my sell of TD Dominion Bank (TD)

Earlier today, I decided to sell my TD Dominion Bank (TD) stocks. I decided to sell for various reasons. As I said quickly previously, TD dividend is quite low (below 4%). I had used margin money to place this investment a couple of weeks ago. My margin account is at an interest rate of 4.25%. The dividend of TD is not even reaching the interest. I knew that when I first invested in TD of course, but at the time, it was an investment just for the heck of it. I always wanted to own TD in my portfolio. Now it’s been a thing done, for the couple of weeks it had last. I made a little profit out my sell. I was happy to sell. This will help to decrease my margin. I am now at 36 000$+ on my margin account. On that amount, a 5 000$ went for payment for my credit line. This meaning I have used 31k for investment purposes.

Following my TD sell, the plan was of course at first to reinvest the money in something else. But remember we are in May. May is known as being a difficult month for investors and I taught that I may calm down before hitting a wall. So that’s how it is for now. Tomorrow, I will try to wake up early and be ready for the market opening. And maybe another trade on the way.

Good call. Interest rate to rise and the Harper Majority was supposed to jolt the banks up, but didn't. It says that there's something running counter to conventional wisdom.
