During tax year 2009, I held the Spider Gold Trust ETF GLD in a taxable account at Scottrade. When I received the 1099 for 2009, it showed a small sale of shares of GLD at the end of each month (small = $4 to 5$ worth). I understand these were GLD's way of charging a management fee. I entered each of these sales on schedule D of my tax return.

(FWIW, I asked a question about this last year here:

Now, in 2010, I continued to hold the GLD in this same account until I sold the entire position in April. I just got the 1099 from Scottrade today and was surprised to see that there were no "little monthly sales" for Jan, Feb or Mar. The only thing shown is the sale of the entire position on 4/6/10.

Can anyone tell me if this is a reporting error on the part of Scottrade or did GLD change their way of charging fees? Do I need to be concerned about this?
