Happy November and hope you had a nice Halloween 🎃 After a busy week of earnings, the S&P 500 ended being up about 2.1% for the month. And with markets closing at all-time highs, it can be harder to find places to put money to work. However, given the new 0% commission fees offered by many of the online brokerages, I celebrated by making more purchases than usual. I feel this is a great way to better dollar cost average into any new company or fund.
