Mutual fund purchase in a manual account showing up with an enormous realized loss
I have an HSA Mutual Fund account that I need to manage manually due to a lack of quicken integration at the institution. For some reason, a purchase of 2.111 shares of VITSX for $200 is showing up with a realized loss that is over $92 quadrillion. If I change VITSX to anything else, it goes away. The only way I've found to work around it is to modify a previous sell transaction so that sells 2.111 fewer shares for $200 less. The end result is correct, but having to do this seems pretty ridiculous. I wish I could post a screenshot to prove that I'm not exaggerating the size of the loss. I'm also unclear as to why a purchase transaction even has an associated loss or gain.
