Sharesight allows you to bulk import your historical buy and sell trades directly from Webull. You can also have your ongoing trades automatically synced to your Sharesight portfolio. Keep reading to learn how.
Note: This only imports your trade history. Once you have imported your history, set up the Trade Confirmation Emails feature to automatically import future trades.
You will require a CSV file export out of Webull to import your trading history into Sharesight. You can do this by following the below steps.
1 - Log into your Webull Account.
2 - Navigate to History
3 - Click on the link to export Orders
1 – Login to Sharesight.
2 - On the ‘Let's get you started with Sharesight’ page, select the ‘Import from a Broker’ tile.
3 - Click on the ‘Webull’ tile on the ‘Import from a Broker’ page.
4 - Click the 'Upload a file' button.
5 – Select the CSV of trades you wish to import.
6 - Click import.
Note: If you have changed brokers and transferred the holdings to Webull these trades will not be imported into Sharesight, and will need to be added manually.
7 – The ‘Trades to import into Portfolio’ page will show an itemised list of all trades imported from your CommSec trading account. Verify and edit the trade data as required.
If trades appear in red, this means that Sharesight can’t upload the trade or the trade will cause errors in your portfolio.
One common error when importing from a broker is:
'Saving this trade would result in a negative number of Shares being held'
This means you are importing more sell shares of a stock than buy shares. It happens if you have transferred stock from another broker or have any off-market trades.
Click ‘Import anyway’ for each of these stocks, then handle them later in Sharesight.
The solutions to other common errors can be found here.
8 – Once you have verified the trade data, click ‘Save all transactions’.
9 - Once the trades are saved, your Sharesight portfolio will be populated and the Portfolio Overview Page will load.
Your holdings will be calculated with Sharesight’s performance calculation methodology, which is a money-weighted return methodology, meaning the performance figures take account of the size and timing of cash flows.
Sharesight will automatically create dividends and corporate actions for the holdings you have imported.
1 - Review the trades imported:
a – Handle any negative holdings - Holdings with less buy trades than sell trades (occurs when you have transferred stocks from another broker).
b - Check fractional share trades for rounding differences.
c - Exchange rates are generated by Sharesight using the end of day exchange rate. These can be edited within the trade.
2 - Verify and confirm automatically generated data (dividends and corporate actions).
3 - Set up the Trade Confirmation Emails feature to automatically import future trades.
4 - Share access to your portfolio with your accountant.
You can automatically import your ongoing Westpac trades using Sharesight's trade confirmation emails feature. Read more about how to forward your contract notes in this guide.
