One of the issues that Trading Dive users have experienced is exporting their trade history from Robinhood. I did a little searching and the only thing I could find was a Github repository where another developer had made a python app that could export trades. This worked pretty well, but it’s a little intimidating for those that aren’t very technical as it required installing python and running it from a terminal. I decided a user friendly open-sourced desktop app would be needed to make exporting trades as painless as possible.
Here’s how it works
Step 1: Download the app. I don’t have official developer certificates from Apple and Microsoft so after downloading and running the app, you will get a security alert that the app is not from an approved developer. In order to use it you will need to approve the app. If you haven’t done this yet, you can read how to do it for windows and mac.
Step 2: Sign into your Robinhood account. Your username and password are never stored.
Step 3: You can select Download All to get all trades ever made, or Download Recent for your recent ones.
Step 4: Click the Export CSV button to save it to your computer.
Step 5 (optional): If you have a Trading Dive account, you can now directly sync your trades from within the app.
If you want to have a look at the code you can view it on Github.
