How Can I Look Up What I Did, When I Did It and for How Much in a CIBC Investor’s Edge Account?

Some of the shares we have bought we have held forever after keeping only an annual eye on them. Others we buy to flip. We buy low, wait a bit, sell part of them high, wait some more, sell part of them higher, chortle as they crash as we rush in to buy more low, and in the meantime scoop up any distributions they make. We keep records of these multiple transactions, to gloat over our successes and wince over our failures. But we also sometimes use the Investor’s Edge transaction history to take a quick look at the last 13 months of confusing history. Here’s how.
