No, the raw data has already been downloaded and processed. I can provide any data field provided by my broker in any order, or I can match up lots and give it in D1 format (description, date, proceeds, basis, gain/loss). The data includes trades up to 30 days after 12/31/2007. The Edcosoft program requires that you copy and paste all of the D1 data for each ticker symbol onto a separate Excel sheet (the program itself is Excel based). With around 250 ticker symbols this is not practical.

250 ticker symbols * 2 (Transaction round-trip) = at least 500 transactions

...Doesn't that qualify you as a trader?
