What is the difference between a register and an account with regard to Investment
I've read a few of the posts about a brokerage having two currencies in one account on their end, but that I am unable to do this in Quicken (Canadian).
The consensus seems to be to have two different registers under one account. I don't understand this terminology. In this instance, wouldn't a register and an account be the same thing, thereby resulting in something like the following in the account list? I can't figure out what I'm missing…where does a separate register fit into this discussion?
