Topic: Getting Historical Position Information (Fidelity Investments)

Hello - I am trying to see what my positions look like as of a specified date. By changing <DTSTART> in <INCTRAN> in the request, I am able to do this for transactions. Applying the same method to <DTASOF> in <INCPOS> does not appear to work for positions. No matter what, the OFX response <DTASOF> is always equal to the current date/time. Is there something wrong in my request, or is this a shortcoming of the Fidelity OFX server? The response below returns transaction information starting 9/1/2011, but position information as of today.

Thanks in advance.

I double checked that <DTASOF> is a valid tag inside of <INCPOS>, and it is.  It is shown in section "Investment Statement Transaction Request <INVSTMTTRNRQ>", pgs 451-452.

<DTASOF> is however not in bold, which means it is optional to support.  I have never tried this, but if this is returning successfully with data except positions are current, then concluding that this is not supported at your broker is highly likely.
