Negative lot amounts
When I sell a part of a position, I used to account for it by entering a new lot with a negative amount of shares. Apparently this option was recently
prohibited, it asks to enter a positive number. Please return the possibility to enter a negative amount.
Thanks for your post!
Unfortunately, we are unable to replicate your inquiry. Can you please send me some screenshots and/or error messages by visiting our help pages (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/finance-for-web#) and clicking ‘Contact Us’?
We look forward to hearing back form you soon!
can you allow negative share amounts in the holdings view of stock entries??
I also went to the contact us page to enter an email help request with this , but the help would keep giving me an invalid YID error but no way to enter in grayed box. My YID was correct
in the holdings view of a portfolio, finance allows adding new lots.However, to track shares sold, a negative share lot amount is not accepted.
I can not enter negative ( $$CASH ) I get a pop up message saying I need to enter an amount greater than zero.
Dear Yahoo Finance, I followed your suggestion, went to (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/finance-for-web# and clicked "Contact Us", it gave me two options: Contact a Yahoo Specialist and See Product-related Help Articles. I've chosen the former, but it led to creation a new support case #00229004. I attached the requested screenshot there.
I also believe you can reproduce the situation by creating a portfolio, adding a symbol and creating a two lots under that symbol - one with a positive 100 shares and one with (-20) shares. You'll see what happens. Also place the mouse cursor on (-20), you'll see the message asking to enter an amount no less than 0.
