Should TD Ameritrade Advisor Client roth IRA contributions be counted three times?

My weekly automatic IRA transfers show up in mint three times: once as a deduction from my checking account, then as a deduction from my TD Ameritrade Advisor Client account and as a credit into my TD Ameritrade Advisor Client account. I realize the money is bouncing around the accounts, but shouldn't it show up an even number of times (2, 4, 6...)? With it showing up three times, the net effect of the transaction is not zero. In this case, for example, if I transferred $100 to my IRA, I'd have -$100 on my checking account, then separate transactions of -$100 and $100 on my TD Ameritrade Advisor Client account. Does this mean my mint account thinks I've spent $100 dollars across all accounts when that money actually just moved to a different location?

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
