Track foreign currency on Sharesight

by David Olsen, Content Manager, Sharesight

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.

32 worldwide currencies can be tracked using the FX account feature – plus 8 cryptocurrencies – with additional currencies to be added in the future.
