Ever since I bought into KO, it has traded on a down trend.  I was not happy with this trade from the beginning, but I did not want to sell at a loss prematurely.  I held on for a few months and saw it bottom out early October at around $37.85, so I averaged down trying to climb back up from the red.

If I didn’t averaged down, I would still be at a loss…

 $3967.50 is funded solely on margin, the opportunity cost was too high for me.  So I decided to let this one go to lower my margin amount.  I lost money on this investment due to interest payments for six months that I held it.

Currently, I still have margin on my USD stocks:  COST, PCLM, LMT, V.  All those stocks have a gain of 6.52%-18.52% which is performing to my standards.  

The markets is shitty so far in December.  Looks like a lot of traders are cashing out before the end of the year…  maybe I should too before all my gains are diminished.

Cenovus Energy Inc. wasn’t doing much for my portfolio.  So I decided to end the relationship with them today.  I will be converting the amount to USD to lower the value on USD Margin.
