TMFhockeypop,
Sorry, no help here.

My goal was to not bother tracking the 'In' in the 401.

Deducted from my pay - and then a match - they go in
'whenever'.

I am just trying to track the real rate of return (when to sell, when to buy) on the 401 investments. I do not move money often.

But I have found that not knowing your cost basis can result in a loss if you sell when 'they say you are up 20%' on the investment firms website.

It actaully was a loss, if you sold like I did, because many years ago I bought at a price much higher.
I was sleeping apparently.

So I would like to stay more current on this.

My current 401 does not give me the real info as far as if the account is up of down since when I purchased (for real).

I just want to be a smarter consumer/investor and want to track if
Things Are Really Up, or not. That is why I need Quicken...
