To transfer all open positions
Create a new file (Creating a new file) or open an existing file within TradeLog.
Import transaction history from the account that is closing to the date of the transfer.
Verify all open positions are correct at date of transfer. (Verify Open Positions.)
From the Account menu, click Transfer
if you are in the Open Positions window, click the Transfer Open Positions button on the toolbar.
A warning dialog will appear asking, "Are you sure you want to transfer open positions?" Click Yes to proceed or No to cancel.
- If you have multiple accounts in your file, you'll get the Select Account box. Either select the account you want to transfer open positions to, or select "Create New Account" to create a new account tab to transfer the positions to.
- If you only have one account in your file, then the Add New Account box will appear. Enter your new account information in all required fields and click OK. TradeLog will now add a tab in your main grid containing your new account and transferred open positions.
If a user is closing an existing account and transferring all open positions to a new account or brokerage, they could simply edit the import filter after they have imported all trades in the existing account up to the date of transfer. However, if there are reconciliation differences in broker's 1099-B statement, it may be difficult to ascertain which account is causing the discrepancy!
