Support / Re: Broker Download won't work for Fidelity; finally works with Schwab.
« Last post by Matt Willms on September 27, 2017, 07:38:26 AM »
Ed, 

Sounds as if something has changed with your broker access.  Are you able to download, if you do a test using the portfolio setup wizard, your current holdings from Fidelity?  We haven't heard of any issues from other users, and since this did work as recently as later August, might be a change due to your accounts/fidelity.  As for Schwab, they recently changed their servers, and are aware of the issue.  They are working on solutions for all Schwab customers.  If you contact them to whitelist your IP address, should work faster for you until they have a global fix.

If you have add'l questions, please contact our support team at 262-241-3990 or email techsupport@investmentaccountmanager.com

Support / Broker Download won't work for Fidelity; finally works with Schwab.
« Last post by edaskew on September 25, 2017, 10:48:21 AM »
I had initially been able to download my transactions from both of these brokers, with no problem, up until August 26th.  However when I tried to update this month, I was not able to do so on either my Schwab accounts or Fidelity accounts.  After having a lot of trouble with Schwab, finally I was able to get 2 of my accounts to update after trying repeatedly, then this morning the last one finally updated.  I kept getting this error message "an error occurred" during the update, or "PIN lockout" or something like that.  With Fidelity, I know the program is able to log into my account because I once removed the account number and it was able to repopulate the number.  It will say "download complete" but no transactions are downloaded, despite the fact there are probably 20 transactions at least.  I changed my passwords for both brokerages and also on IAM.  I checked the firewall log, and Bitdefender is not blocking it.  I turned the firewall off and got the same results.  I'm running version 3.0.7 on Windows 10.

I figured it out... after transferring the security between portfolios, then you can do a Tender/Exchange of "security A" for "security B" in the new portfolio.  No gain/loss recognized.  It works swimmingly!

Matt,

This was a good suggestion, and I wish to share the outcome for the benefit of future readers.  This action did transfer the security from the IRA portfolio to the 401(k) portfolio, as advertised.  But what occurred in the real-life rollover transaction is that "security A" held in the IRA was sold, with the proceeds used to purchase "security B" in the 401(k).  The transfer of value from "security A" to "security B", in addition to transferring from one portfolio to another (without realizing a gain or loss), is what I am trying to capture within IAM - not simply moving "security A" from one portfolio to another. 

Many thanks,

  kevin

Kevin,

Use the edit menu | transfer a security choice to transfer each position from the IRA portfolio to the 401k portfolio...

Transactions / IRA rollover into 401(k)
« Last post by ksakers on August 08, 2017, 10:02:20 PM »
I use IAM to track, among other investments, my 401(k) and traditional IRA as separate portfolios.  I recently decided to rollover the IRA holdings into the 401(k). 

What is the best way to account for this tax-deferred rollover in IAM?  I could simply enter a "sell" transaction in the IRA portfolio and a "purchase" transaction in the 401(k) portfolio, but this would recognize the gain as "realized" for the year (i.e. no recognition of tax-deferred status).  I considered a Tender/Exchange, but it seems you can only do this within the same portfolio but not between separate portfolios.

Thanks,

  kevin

Roy,

Yes, we have had other users tell us they have found such tools on the internet, and converted .csv to ofx for import into IAM.

Is it possible to convert the .CSV file of transaction the broker provides to a QFX file that I can down load to IAM? - Roy
