Connect your Interactive Brokers account

Content also available for tax entities or on our global site.

This integration is for retail clients only. However Sharesight do support multi-account IB structures such as advisors.

Note: It’s important that the base currency of your IB account matches your Sharesight portfolio’s base currency. If these are different, then any foreign trades will be imported into Sharesight with incorrect exchange rates.

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

Note: IB only provides your trading activity for the last 7 days to Sharesight from the day the connection is enabled. You’ll need to manually add trades that are older than 7 days into your portfolio.
Note: We only allow for the import of standard BUY and SELL trades via the IB integration. Short selling transactions, including SHORT and COVER trade types are not supported.
