Tracking foreign exchange investments in your Sharesight portfolio

Investors have been able to manually track cash investments in Sharesight using the custom investment feature for some time. Sharesight’s new FX account feature is a significant improvement, with intraday price updates at 5 minute intervals, plus the ability to denominate brokerage fees in the currency being traded.

Over 100 global currencies can be tracked using the FX account feature – plus a range of cryptocurrencies – with additional currencies to be added in the future.
