Quicken / Brokerage Balance Disagreement
I recently purchased a security. Since it takes a couple of days for the download feed to pick up this transaction, I always manually enter these types of security actions as soon as the trade confirmation report is available. Never had an issue until this latest activity. The next time I downloaded transactions from the brokerage account, a Placeholder entry was inserted that undid the purchase and returned the cash to my cash balance. Now my Quicken account shows that I do not own any of the shares of the company but my brokerage account clearly shows the purchase and share balance. When I click Reconcile Shares, I get the "Your Quicken account and your Brokerage Holdings are in agreement." response. Clearly this is wrong. I have deleted all transactions and the security from the Security List. Tried to download and get no notice of balance misalignment. I can manually add the transaction back and all is well until the next time I do a download and the process starts all over again. Clearly Quicken thinks the Brokerage download is telling it that I have no shares of this stock. I have been maintaining this account in Quicken since 2003 and have never seen this failure mode before. Help!
