Use Sharesight’s Trade Confirmation Emails feature for ongoing trades

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: This feature is designed primarily for ongoing trades, but it can also be used to fill in historical trades in your Sharesight portfolio. All you need to do is manually forward the Trade Confirmation Emails for the trades you wish to see in your portfolio, starting with the earliest trade you want included.
