Bitfinex File Limitations

Due to limitations with the Bitfinex file export, if you have margin transactions they will appear as spot trades. This is because Bitfinex does not distinguish between margin trades or spot trades on their official Trade History file. Please review these transactions prior to submitting your tax reports and consult with a tax professional if necessary.
