i sold a stock for the first time in 2000. i sold it for a loss, but on my 1099 from e-trade, it doesn't tell me how much i paid for the stock. it only shows how much i sold it for. i logged on to my account, and they don't show the buy transaction, only the sell. is e-trade not giving me all the info, or am i missing something.

thanks
