Things to take note when creating a Transactions Portfolio:

  • For stocks that have a currency other than your portfolio’s base currency, the entry should be based on the original listing currency. The system will automatically convert it to the currency you have chosen for your portfolio. If you enter a converted price, it will create a wrong converted value, as if the value will be converted twice. 
  • Our portfolio management tool automatically recognizes and adjusts dividends and splits. Hence, when inputting stock prices, it requires entries to be using the original data (pre-split).
