PLEASE NOTE: Robinhood used to have a method to request the transaction history, but this has recently changed. This is a change you will need to contact Robinhood about. If the broker won’t provide your trade history, then you will have to manually enter trades (http://www.tradelogsoftware.com/user-guide/manuallly-enter-trades.php) or format your own data in an Excel file (http://www.tradelogsoftware.com/user-guide/excel-text.php).
Note: Robinhood does not separate fees from the total amount in their trade transaction history. Also, they list price rounded to the nearest penny. Therefore, TradeLog uses the total amount reported for a trade to determine a more accurate price. Robinhood does not identify short stock/etf trades, TradeLog will auto-assign shorts upon import.
- Robinhood clients must first request a CSV file with transaction history, which will be emailed to them.
When requesting data make sure to request all trades for the tax year you are working on, as well as January of the next tax year (unless using MTM accounting). Robinhood may send multiple CSV files to fill your request.
Important: do not edit the CSV file obtained from Robinhood before importing into TradeLog. If previewing the CSV data in a program like Excel, make sure not to save the file upon closing.
- Save the CSV file to the documents/tradelog/import folder for best results.
Note: If you have not already done so you will need to select the appropriate import filter. Please See: Selecting a Broker Import Filter.
- Click the Robinhood Imp Import button
- Select the file you received from your broker and click Open. (Note: if you did not save the CSV file to the documents/tradelog/import folder, you will need to navigate in Windows Explorer to find and select the file you received).
TradeLog will prompt you to save the imported data. Click Yes.
Repeat this step if necessary to import additional data (such as the trades for January of the next tax year).
