OK, so I have a dumb question.

I've had most of my accounts FOREVER with eTrade (ever since they acquired Brownco). At tax time, I rely quite heavily on exporting my trades into Turbo Tax, especially since I don't trust myself at keeping track of cost basis (especially with dividend reinvestments) and wash sales. I like the idea of transferring assets to Merrill Edge for the bonus, but would that mean I'd lose track of my trading history? Or does that somehow transfer as well?

Thanks.
Cathy
