Transactions / Re: Vanguard Transaction Downloads
« on: December 07, 2020, 12:39:43 PM »
Roger, Vanguard has recently changed their front door access to transactional downloads, so by using the second request, they permit access.  I am unaware of why on occasion they would not be sending transaction activity.  Please check the date range, and verify the activity is available on their site.  If any add'l questions, please contact our support team:

Fidelity is changing the OFX access for improved security, and this should be back up and running on 12/7 according to their tech support team.  You might verify by contacting your tech rep at Fidelity and ask them what the 'access denied' message means, why you are receiving it, and when it will be resolved.  If you learn more, please let us know.

Transactions / Re: Unable to download transactions from Schwab
« on: November 11, 2020, 08:26:19 AM »
We've released an update to Investment Account Manager 3.2.2 (Individual and Professional) that provides an improved method for importing transactional files in csv format (comma separated values) from Charles Schwab brokerage.  The improved import method was required due to changes made by Charles Schwab and their decision to disable the current automated brokerage download using the OFX (Open Financial Exchange) method. 

This new method for importing transactional files will allow users to update their Schwab brokerage accounts until we are able to, as possible, get the OFX method reinstated.  We are further working with Schwab to re-write the download method to meet their new transactional download format given their decision to discontinue OFX permanently going forward, migrating to a new format standard. 

To download this latest release, start your copy of IAM3 and use the Menu Bar | Check for Updates choice.  If the choice to ‘Check for Updates’ is inactive in your copy of Investment Account Manager v3 Individual, this indicates your technical support period has expired.  If your support has expired, you can extend technical support for an additional year, by clicking here: https://www.investmentaccountmanager.com/products/product-category/support-individual/ (includes support renewal for up to 3 computers per user).  When ordering your support renewal, you will need to enter your IAMv3 user ID number as shown on the IAMv3 Help Menu | Product Support Screen.

Once you have updated to our latest v3.2.2 release, please refer to the attached document guide for steps to log into your Schwab brokerage account(s), define the transactional file for download, and then how to import into IAM using the Transactions Menu | Import Transactional File (CSV).

If any additional questions, please contact the IAM Technical Support team: techsupport@investmentaccountmanager.com

Transactions / Re: Unable to download transactions from Schwab
« on: October 22, 2020, 08:47:31 AM »
The answer you received from Schwab is not quite accurate...

Seems Schwab is no longer providing to 3rd party vendors (such as ourselves) the prior download format OFX (open financial exchange) to allow you to download your activity.  They discontinued on Oct 16th...outside of our control, without any warnings for our shared customers (such as you).   So as of now, the current method you have used will no longer work. 

We are in contact with Schwab and have submitted the necessary registration for approval to a new API connection, and are waiting for Schwab to approve.  Hopefully this will be quick action on their end.  Meanwhile, we are developing a workaround for importing a csv file defaulted to the Schwab format as provided on their web site.  Both changes, as available, will be included in our next IAM3 Individual update, 3.2.2. Stay tuned... Matt

MY FOUR GOALS
Jonathan Clements | Editor of HumbleDollar.com

I’m probably a year or two away from regularly tapping my portfolio for income. That prospect—coupled with this year’s market turmoil—has led me to tinker with my investment mix and ponder how I’ll generate cash once I’m retired. One surprising result: I have more in stocks today than I’ve had at any time in the past three years, and I’m thinking of increasing my allocation even further.

« on: July 21, 2020, 10:06:04 AM »
There is no means to set up / schedule automatic deposits to a brokerage cash account. However, if you download the activity each month from your broker, the deposit can be posted that way with all other monthly activity.

With summer now under way, gardening hobbyists are busily weeding, watering and tending to their plants in hope of a bountiful crop.


All gardeners know that the better the care, the better the harvest. And, just as a gardener equally will tend to all the ‘rows’ in their vegetable or flower gardens, an investor must equally manage all the investment portfolios they own, including their taxable and non-taxable accounts.
