The Match function allows a user to override the default FIFO trade matching and match trades by another matching method such as LIFO ("Last In, First Out), HIFO ("Highest In, First Out") and other methods.
Important: Trades in TradeLog must be matched according to the broker's trade matching!
To match specific trade records into a tax lot:
Select each trade record to be matched into one specific tax lot. See Selecting Multiple Trades.
From the Adjustments menu, click Match or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + M.
A Warning popup window will appear, asking "Match selected records?". Click YES to match, NO to cancel.
If you selected YES, TradeLog will force every selected record together into a tax lot, and assign a new trade number to the lot.
A Confirm popup window will appear, asking "Save your changes?". Click YES to save, NO to cancel.
If you need to reverse the matching function, click the Undo button.
Result: All trades that were matched using the Match function will have the same lot number displayed in the "Matched" column. See: Display Matched Tax Lots
