When downloading a Covered Call from my TD Ameritrade account, Quicken correctly classifies it as a ShtSell. It fills in most fields properly, except the Security Name.

I have the option to enter it manually via "Add Security", however my question is: what do I use as Security Type? Is it Stock, or Option, or something else?

    It's an Option for your eyes. Quicken doesn't know or care about exchange-traded options.
