Import from a CSV File

General Procedure:
Note: Fidelity trade history is available for the last 5 trading years.
  • Log on to your Fidelity Investments account.

  • Select your account and click Activity & Orders followed by History.

  • Select a Time Period and click the Go button.
    Note: Fidelity Investments limits each download to 90 days. Five separate csv files (quarters 1-4 and quarter 1 of the following year) will need to be downloaded and imported into TradeLog to account for the full 13 months of data required for non-MTM users. MTM users only download quarters 1-4 of the year you are working on. You can also download the history for a specific date range. For the example below we will use a full quarter period.
  • Wait for the data to be displayed, then click the Download link to begin the csv file download.
    5. Click the Save button on the popup File Download dialog box.
    Note: If the csv file opens in your web browser, or opens in Microsoft Excel, rather than receiving a prompt to download and save, then there is likely a problem with your Windows file associations for csv files. For instructions on how to fix this click here
    Save the file to the documents/tradelog/import folder.
    Repeat steps 3 through 5 to download quarters 2-4 and quarter 1 of the following year.
    6. Run TradeLog
    Note: If you have not already done so you will need to select the appropriate import filter. Please See: Selecting a Broker Import Filter.
    7. Click the Fidelity Speed Import button
    8. Select the first file you downloaded from Fidelity Investments and click Open.
         TradeLog will prompt you to save the imported data. Click Yes.
    Note: You will need to repeat this step for all four quarters to import the full year as well as January of the following year
