Trade Importing

TradePerformance allows you to import your transactions from various brokers and review your performance without keying all the data in separately.  In order to accomplish this, however, your broker or trading platform must provide a reliable data file to read.

TradePerformance currently supports importing from a number of brokers and trading platforms and we are adding more on an as requested basis.  If you do not see the one you need please contact us for help.

Formats Currently Supported:

  1. Schwab.com
  2. Interactive Brokers - Daily export file from TWS (does not include commissions).
  3. Interactive Brokers - Daily or Monthly reports generated in "TradeLog" format from their Account Management website. 
  4. Ameritrade Institutional
  5. J-Trader
  6. Trade Station
  7. QIF files
  8. REDI-Plus
