TradeLog Supported Broker Imports:

Supported Brokers in Alphabetical Order:

Notes:

  1. Import Type:
    • BC brokerConnect import method allows the best importing from supported brokers. Using account credentials entered by you, TradeLog will connect directly with your online brokerage account and retrieve trade history – this is usually the easiest method of importing. For all brokerConnect supported brokers, an alternative import method is also available.
    • CSV import method requires that you download the appropriate trade history report in comma separated text (*.csv) or plain text (*.txt) format from your online broker account. When ready to import into TradeLog, simply click the Import button in the software and choose the file you just downloaded. TradeLog will read the data and import in the proper fields.
    • Web import method requires that you select and copy the appropriate trade history report from your online broker account. When ready to import into TradeLog, simply click the Import button in the software and TradeLog will read the copied data from the windows clipboard and import in the proper fields.
    • Excel/Text import method requires that you select and copy the contents of an Excel or plain text file that was created or properly formatted by you. When ready to import into TradeLog, simply click the Import button in the software and TradeLog will read the copied data from the windows clipboard and import in the proper fields.
    • QFX/QIF import method requires that you download the appropriate trade history report in (*.qfx) or (*.qif) format from your online broker account. When ready to import into TradeLog, simply click the Import button in the software and choose the QFX/QIF file you just downloaded. TradeLog will read the data and import in the proper fields.
  2. Time of Day:
    Many brokers do not include a time stamp in their trade history. TradeLog automatically matches trades from these brokers using first-in, first-out trade matching rules. If a broker does not report the trades in the exact order of execution, then mismatches can occur.
  3. Short Sales:
    Many brokers do not flag short sale trades or buys to cover. Therefore TradeLog automatically assigns (AutoAssigns) trades from these brokers either short or long based on first-in, first-out trade matching rules (i.e., if the sell comes before the buy then the trade is marked as short).
  4. Options:
    Broad-Based Index options are treated as section 1256 contracts by the IRS and therefore do not get reported on IRS Schedule D. TradeLog will identify these trades upon import and classify them accordingly. See our Broad-Based Index Options tax topic for details.
  5. Futures:
    Most futures brokers do not provide suitable trade history reports to import into TradeLog. See our Futures support topic for details.
  6. Currency Futures:
    TradeLog offers limited support for Currency Futures at just a few brokers. The reason is that most brokers do not provide suitable trade history reports for TradeLog to properly match trades.
  7. Forex:
    TradeLog offers limited support for FOREX trades at just a few brokers. The reason is that most brokers do not provide suitable trade history reports for TradeLog to properly match trades.
