Activity Statement Updates

Activity Statements have been updated with the following changes:

  • New codes have been added to closing trades for customers using the Tax Optimizer. If FIFO (First In, First Out) is not the tax lot-matching method used, then one of these codes will appear with a closing trade:
    • MLG - Maximize Long-Term Gain
    • MLL - Maximize Long-Term Loss
    • MSG - Maximize Short-Term Gain
    • MSL - Maximize Short-Term Loss
    • SL - Specific Lot

    Note that LI (Last In, First Out) and ML (Maximize Losses) are still available codes for closing trades. ML will appear with closing trades only for customers who have selected Maximize Losses as their default tax lot-matching method (tax basis) on the Tax Basis Declaration page in Account Management.
  • In the Notes/Legal Notes section, Note 6 has been modified. It now reads "Each closed lot indicated above with a reference to note (6) was chosen by the end of the trading day to be sold versus the specific opening purchase identified in that row."
Margin Report Updates

Additional legal notes have been added to Margin Reports for IB-UK, IB-UKL and IB-LLC customers.
