by David Olsen, Senior Marketing Manager — Content/SEO, Sharesight | Feb 22nd 2018

Investors can now track foreign currency holdings as an FX currency account in their Sharesight portfolio, with prices updated every 5 minutes (20 minute delayed). We’re using Open Exchange Rates’ API to bring investors intraday foreign exchange rates (in addition to intraday cryptocurrency prices).

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.
