Trading 212 CSV: Where's the Market Info? Help Us Improve!

Hey Trading 212 folks,

Quick question for everyone: Is anyone else finding the CSV export a bit lacking? I noticed it doesn’t include the market where a stock was bought. This seems like a pretty important detail, right?

  • Ambiguity: Many tickers are traded on multiple markets. For example, Carnival (CCL) is listed on both the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Without the market information in the CSV export, it’s difficult to determine which exchange the security was purchased from.
  • Data Incompleteness: Tickers alone do not uniquely identify a security worldwide since the same ticker can identify 2 different securities in 2 different markets. To accurately track holdings and perform analysis, the market information is essential.

I was hoping the export could be updated to include the market as well as the ticker. It’d be a huge help for keeping accurate records and understanding our investments.

What do you guys think? Is this something we should bring up with Trading 212? Let me know your thoughts!

As long as you know the ticker, you can always add the market yourself from the Excel stocks data. I don’t understand how knowing which exchange a stock is traded on can help you with some-kind of an analysis. Like for example what does it matter if your stock is traded on either NYSE or Nasdaq?

However, I can’t say the same for ticker symbols, they are varying a lot from tickers in Yahoo Finance or which I haven’t delved into deeper. I regularly access my data through the Trading212’s API and make some analysis using yfinance library and always see some deviations in ticker names. For example’s ticker from Trading212’s API is apparently PCLN, but from the app it’s still BKNG.

Hi emilcify,

Thanks for your reply! I hear you about being able to find the market information elsewhere. However, for many of us, the CSV export is a primary record of our Trading 212 activity. It seems like a natural fit to include the exchange where the trade happened right alongside the other details.

Here are a few reasons why I personally find the market information valuable:

  • Price Accuracy: Minor price differences can exist between exchanges. Having the correct exchange listed helps me verify that I’m tracking my portfolio’s value accurately.
  • Clarity and Transparency: When reviewing my transaction history, having the market clearly listed helps me immediately understand where each trade occurred. It’s a simple detail that enhances the transparency of my investment records.
  • Portfolio Analysis Tools: I use a third-party software (Pro Stock Tracker) to analyze my holdings, and it requires the market code for proper import. Manually adding it each time I need to import the Trading 212 CSV is a time-consuming extra step.

Ultimately, while it’s technically possible to find the market information elsewhere, having it included in the CSV export makes the data more complete and saves users time. It’s a small change that would improve the utility of the export for many users.
