Regular security sale wanting to be a short sale
I sold a mutual fund yesterday. Today I am recording the transaction in quicken. I've selected "Sell - Shares Sold" from the dropdown menu. I entered the security, chose Sell All shares in this account, entered the price received and a pop up comes up from Quicken saying Recording A Short Transaction. But - this is not a short sale. I have owned the mutual fund shares for several years.
I tried manually entering the number of shares sold instead of selecting All Shares In This Account but I'm still getting a prompt for Recording A Short Sale. If I hit OK it does record it as a Short. If I hit Cancel, nothing happens.
Been using Quicken since '06 and have not seen this before. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong - or is this a bug?
