    I also have the same question. How can I apply FIFI automatically without having to assign, IS Shares, Individually. As you can image it is too time consuming to do this manually. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I suspect you meant FIFO or LIFO.  FIFO is the default behavior.  We may control the behavior for each investment account: select Edit > Preferences...

    Uh, just for the record - it is either LIFO or FIFO - there is no FILO.

    Uh, just for the record, LIFO and FILO are synonymous.
