In the past couple of months (end of 1999) I started trading stock with Ameritrade... so far I'm at a +$4000. I didn't get any information from Ameritrade, or even a hint that I was going to get a 1099-B. The stocks/money are still in Ameritrade. I never took any money out of it ( I did make an initial investment of $10,000).
Do I need to report any of this? If so, what do I report?

Thank you.
