shorted options expiring out of the money still shown in account holdings
As described in title. Can not prevent a shorted option that expires out-of-the-money from still be listed in account holdings, even though the share balance is zero. The transaction where the position is opened is entered as "ShtSell", and the balancing transaction entered after the option expiration date is entered as "Add - shares added". The "date acquired" box in the closing transaction box has been filled in with the date that the option was shorted so that both transactions have the same lot number for the shares. I'm using Quicken 2016 deluxe for Windows.
