I totally forgot that on top of free trades for two months, I was supposed to receive $200 bonus from Etrade. So it was a pleasant surprise. :)
I still have $6k left to invest in my Etrade account, so I will buy more stocks in next couple of weeks.
Good thing that even my free trades are over, Etrade switched me to $4.95 per trade instead of $6.95. Each dollar counts, right? :)
I start thinking that until the end of this year I might only buy stocks and sell some losers to offset some capital gains, because I will have a huge tax bill from the sale of my rental house. I already precalculated this amount before I decided to sell the house. So should be no surprises there. Eventually I plan to write a post why I decided to sell my rental house.
This week I've got a good news about our rental property in Russia - my dad found new renters for a year. Bad news - he sent me his calculations for repairs and maintenance fees and it looks like all income will be covering these fees for a while. It is still good though that it will be repaid with renters payments! We plan to sell this property in a year(straightening up documents right now) and buy a better condo for my mom here instead. I have to tell you - owning a property overseas is no fun at all.
I was planning to purchase more stocks this week but I started my purchases Thursday and planned to buy more Friday. But on Friday prices started going up, so I didn't purchase anything that day.
30 shares of TX
15 shares of UFS

How was your week?
