Transactions / Charles Schwab Broker Downloads
« Last post by Forum Administrator on June 28, 2021, 10:59:28 AM »
As of June 30th 2021, Charles Schwab will no longer allow users of IAM to automatically download brokerage activity.  Charles Schwab has adopted a new file format method for such downloads, no longer supporting the current OFX (Open Financial Exchange) method that remains utilized by most financial institutions.  As an alternative, we have developed for users of IAM that are clients of Charles Schwab a method to easily import their transactional data.  Attached to this post is a resource guide with step-by-step instructions.  These instructions are also included within the IAM online help  system.

When entering your buy/sell transactions, you have the check box option to 'deduct from' or 'deposit to' selected in the lower left hand corner, prior to selecting the save button.  If you uncheck this offset, no deposit or withdrawal will be recorded.

General Discussion / Entering Buy/Sell Transactions
« Last post by chris319 on June 12, 2021, 11:11:23 PM »
Hello -

I spent many hours trying to manually enter transactions in Investment Account Manager. It had the curious behavior of automatically entering buy and sell transactions of the money-market fund whenever I bought or sold a stock/fund. I really don't like this. It was making up transactions I didn't enter and of which my brokerage has no record. Is there any way to defeat this behavior? It would be OK to credit or debit the cash balance in a way that is not visible to the user, but I don't want it entering transactions and dates for those made-up transactions that I and my brokerage didn't make. That's a non-starter for me.

Thank you.

Yes, you can add using the 'Other Investment' type, and then be sure to use the proper symbol as provided by QuoteMedia for the crypto currency you would like to track.  For example, use the symbol ~BTCUSD  for Bitcoin...

General Discussion / QuoteMedia prices for Cryptocurrency
« Last post by TopDog on May 18, 2021, 05:17:39 PM »
The release notes for version 3.2.4 says:

added daily and historical QuoteMedia pricing for Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency

How does one go about adding Bitcoin (BTC) to the Current Asset Library?  I assume that would be the first step in getting daily prices.

Should there be a Cryptocurrency Security Type?  I've tried Other Investment, but that doesn't seem to be correct.

Thank you.

I suggest deleting that individual transfer(s), then edit the proper dates, and re-transfer.  As part of deleting the transfer, you'll be prompted to also delete the shares in the received portfolio.  If you have add'l questions, please contact our support team directly: techsupport@investmentaccountmanager.com, or give us a call: 262-241-3990.

I inherited an account that had a step up basis date of 8/20/19.  I received the account transfer on 5/19/20.  I went through the process of transferring in each lot and was able to get the transactions transferred in on 5/19/20 with a cost basis date of 8/20/19.   :) :)

I have since discovered that there were some lots that were added into the account after 8/20/19 due to dividend reinvestment that I added with a cost basis of the date of the original transaction when I think they should have been transferred with a cost basis of the transfer date (5/19/20).

Example: In inherited account: 9/4/19 - 37.187 shares of F acquired.  Transferred to the new account on 5/19/20, with a cost basis date of 9/4/19.

I would like to figure out how to change the cost basis date of this transaction from 9/14/29 to 5/19/20 since it was acquired after the 8/19/20 step up basis date.

Any ideas?  Thanks as always for your help.
