I'm invested in CEFL, MORL, and BDCL for over 3 years. I've weathered the ups and downs and collected dividends of over $10,000 on each of them. Since February I have been unable to track their dividends on NASDAQ charts and the "ETN/ETF Headlines". I get my monthly statements and view the dividends. Anyone out there who can help please let me know. Great monthly article by this fantastic author. Thanks Bob
Please. Message me if you find an answer I am also confused about this
