I posted in Investments re:loadsectrans not handling Buy and Sell transactions, and @dtd mentioned that "Extension Dev" might be a more apt place for it. Not wanting to recreate the post entirely, I'll just mention here that if there's no better alternative in existence, I may try my hand at extending the extension. Any advice/guidance is welcome.

    Hi van_looveren
    Loadsectrans was written to load transactions from Hargreaves Lansdown. 
    Their transactions do not have a buy/sell flag on them just a contract
    note which is a pointer to a pdf file which I can not read.  I expect
    other platforms have a better transaction format but it is not one I use.

    @Mike Bray, if loadsectrans was extended to support Buy and Sell, would you be open to a pull request?

    Yes, I would need the email address you used for bitbucket so I can add
    you to the project. I can't guarentee to apply it but happy to consider it.
