The thing that bothers me the most about Quicken (Delux 2012 and previous) is its disregard for options. Best I can tell, it says to treat them like stocks. This means if you write an option, you have to enter it as a "short" sale. Which it essentially is. But you would think after all these years they would address it. They could even ask you for the expiration date and then alert you and ask if it expired.

The other problem is, if an option expires, it sort of disappears from your brokerage account and you have to manipulate things manually after a download to quicken.

So, am I missing something? Any great tricks you guys use?

Thanks
