Interactive Brokers Retail Integration
Follow the instructions below to setup an connection between your Interactive Brokers (IB) account and Sharesight.
This integration is for retail clients only. However Sharesight do support multi-account IB structures such as advisors.

Once you have completed these setup steps, your trading activity will be automatically imported into your selected Sharesight portfolio on a daily basis.
