Interactive Brokers cash account integration

Hi, very happy to see the IB integration beta. Obviously trades are imported into the Sharesight environment but just wondering if balances and changes to cash accounts in IB are imported as well. Thanks

  • Hi Matthew,

    At this stage we only import trades into Sharesight. Cash transactions and dividends etc are not handled.

    We do now allow you to nominate a manual cash account as your 'trading cash account'. Once configured, all trades created in your portfolio will create a corresponding cash transaction entry.

    We will be expanding this soon to include dividends and distributions as well.

    To enable this feature, first add a manual cash account and then select the account as your trading account.

  • Thanks for the clarification.
    Is it possible to set up a trading cash account for a particular broker (say IB) and yet maintain a separate Xero contract note integration with another broker (say CommSec)? In other words, record all IB trades in the nominated cash account but keep the CommSec trades out of it?
    • Hi Matthew,

      At the moment that configuration isn't possible although I can certainly see the requirement for this type of setup.

      Our immediate next step will be to allow a nominated dividend cash account, after that we will be looking at the various feature requests around cash accounts and see which area of development will benefit the most users.

      We will include your requirement in this discussion.
