How to export your account history

Below are instructions detailing how to export your account history. Note: our Support team is not able to place or download history export requests on your behalf.

The steps below are for clients using the Kraken Classic interface. For Kraken Pro instructions visit this article. 

  1. 1
    Navigate to the Export page 
    • Click on the History tab once signed into your Kraken account
    • Then click on the Export tab

    Alternatively, you may export your account history via API.

  2. 2
    Select your export options

    There are three things you'll need to choose:

    • Trades vs Ledgers
    • All fields (deselection of fields are optional)
    • Date Period (Start and End)

    Trades vs Ledger


    Trades exports focus on the execution details of non-margin and margin trades.

    Ledger exports focus on changes to account balances. They include deposits, withdrawals, fees, trading profits and losses and exchanges of one currency for another.

    For more details, read our article on ledger vs trades data.

    Note: It is not possible to directly export your Order history, but you can easily piece it together by exporting your Trades history.

  3. 4

    Once your request goes from "Queued" to "Processed", you can download it to your computer.

    Note: we currently do not send an email notification when your export file is ready for download. You'll need to manually check.
