Import your historical trades from CMC

- Click on the Confirmations tab
- Select advanced option so the date range covers all historical trades
- Download them as a CSV file
- Upload your file in the CMC broker tile
Note: If you have changed brokers and transferred the holdings to CMC these trades will not be imported into Sharesight. Due to a chess transfer. For the international shares, please forward the pdf trade confirmation file from CMC into your Sharesight's portfolio email address.
17--Once the trades are imported, your Sharesight portfolio will be populated and the Portfolio Overview Page will load.
Your holdings will be calculated by Sharesight’s performance calculation methodology which is a money-weighted return methodology, meaning the investment performance takes account of the size and timing of cash flows.
Sharesight will automatically create dividends and corporate actions for the holdings you have imported.
Now that you have populated your portfolio, we recommend you verify and confirm automatically generated data.
With the CMC Sharesight connect any time you trade with CMC your trade will automatically be populated with Sharesight.
The CMC and Sharesight connect can revoke at any time. It needs to revoked in both Bendigo Invest Direct website & Sharesight.
