I used to have small number of trades per year with Ameritrade per year, so I would print out a buy trade confirmation sheet when I purchase, and print out another sold trade confirmation when I close out the trade. I stabled two sheets and store in a 3 hole binder. I keep a spreadsheet also to do data entry into my Schedule D. This year, I am beginning to use IB to trade stocks and options. I found it difficult to keep track of the trades I made so far this year. I am making more smaller trades this year because of options trading. IB's trade confirmation page groups all the same day trades on the same page. So, in order to do what I use to do, I would have to print the same page multiple times and pacil the detail since IB does not show the total cost/total received. For those of you trade a lot and use IB, how do you keep your trade confirmation records?
