My February stock purchase of Amazon (AMZN), a puppy, and the E*Trade app

Note from Daily Trade Alert: In January 2020 we launched a brand new column geared entirely for new investors, headed up by our good friend, Liz. Liz is a millennial who admits she knows practically NOTHING about investing. Which is actually quite perfect for this column, since many of you reading it may be in similar situations — you’ll be learning together! Liz started from scratch in 2020 and is taking us along on her journey as she learns how to make smart investments that can help her achieve her goal: to generate passive income so she can be more selective with the freelance work she takes on, as well as spend more time enjoying her two horses, Cairo and Nimbus.

Welcome back to my investing journey!

February was a great month for my business, so I decided to up my monthly budget from $1000 to approximately $2000 and purchase one share of Amazon (AMZN).

However, I ran into a snafu with E*Trade having a hold on my funds as a new account! By the time everything was resolved, I had to take my puppy to the vet and wouldn’t be home to make the trade until the markets were closed. The E*Trade app came to the rescue, and I was able to make the trade just in the nick of time.

Check out the video to learn more about why I chose Amazon, why there was a hold on my funds, and my review of the E*trade app!

Thanks for following my journey! More monthly trades and interviews to come!

To a brighter future,
