Why Does My Brokerage Account Reconciliation Shows non-zero Starting Cash Balance?
I had my brokerage account for 4 months before I found out I could track it on Quicken and do online downloads. It never reconciled properly because of the missing 4 months. I decided to sit down with my paper statements and manually input all the transactions for months 1-4. When I try to reconcile the first month, I get a negative starting cash balance. From the register, the first transaction was the cash deposit. I had to tune my OCD down and let Quicken make the balance adjustment for the first month. After reconciling months 2 and 3 successfully, month 4 has another discrepancy with the cash balance. I went through all four months against the paper statements and there are no errors or omissions. Help!!
