Automatically track IG Markets trades with Sharesight
Investors trading with global broker IG Markets can automatically import trades in stocks and ETFs to their Sharesight portfolio, giving them access to Sharesight’s award-winning performance, dividend tracking and tax reporting features. With support for more than 200 leading global brokers, plus automatically updated price and dividend information on over 240,000 stocks, ETFs and mutual/managed funds, Sharesight allows investors to effortlessly track all of their investments in one place.
Founded in 1974, IG Markets is a UK-based broker with an online trading platform that also operates in Australia, allowing investors to trade in assets such as shares, ETFs, CFDs and Forex. The platform gives investors access to 17,000 global markets, with the ability to trade in currencies such as AUD, GBP and USD. Other key features include free trading courses and webinars, an interactive forum for IG Markets customers, as well as the ability to simulate trades using a demo account.
By importing your IG Markets trades to Sharesight, you can easily track your investment performance across different brokers, asset classes and markets, or leverage Sharesight’s advanced performance and tax reporting designed for the needs of self-directed investors.
Unlike the data provided by most brokers, Sharesight takes into account the impact of capital gains, dividends, brokerage fees and currency fluctuations when calculating returns – giving investors the full picture of their portfolio’s performance. Sharesight also offers a range of powerful reports for investors including Performance, Portfolio Diversity, Contribution Analysis, Multi-Currency Valuation and Future Income (upcoming dividends). The ability to track cash accounts, property and even cryptocurrency is just another reason that investors should consider using Sharesight to track their investment portfolio.
Sharesight allows you to import your historical and ongoing IG Markets trades made in AUD, GBP and USD through the Trade Confirmation Emails feature, or you can choose to manually import your historical trades by uploading a spreadsheet file. Keep reading to learn more.
The simplest way to import historical trades to Sharesight is by creating and formatting a spreadsheet file filled with trades from your trading account. This is especially useful if you need to upload a large number of trades. As long as the file contains all the required information, you can upload it to Sharesight and quickly bulk import the trading data you wish to see in your portfolio.
Sharesight’s Trade Confirmation Emails feature is an effortless way to import historical and ongoing trades to a Sharesight portfolio. By simply having your broker’s trade confirmations forwarded to your unique Sharesight email address, all of your trades are synced to your portfolio, inclusive of corporate actions such as dividends, mergers and stock splits, with no effort on your part.
Note: Sharesight supports price and performance tracking for stocks, ETFs and managed funds. We do not support tracking for CFDs.
Sharesight currently supports IG Markets’ trade confirmations for stocks and ETFs made by Australian clients in AUD, GBP and USD. If you would like us to add support for IG Markets trade confirmations in more countries, leave us a message in the chat interface located at the bottom-right of Sharesight, or let us know at the Sharesight Community. All we will need is some sample buy and sell trade confirmations (email or PDF) and the email the broker sends them from.
