    Default Portfolio Management Software

    I use Google Sheets for an assets register and Direct Broking's 'My Portfolio' function for Australasian share and bond positions. I'm wanting a bit more detail now other than overall unrealised P/L and % of portfolio.
    Do members have any sugestions, particularly for individual listings, ie monthly, annulised and commulitive P/L?
    I'd be grateful for your comments. Thanks.

    Thanks Stoploss/Baa_Baa,

    I agree it is an excellent tracking system. I'm on the free limit of 10 listings but need more. Are you aware of any incentive for upgrading, ie senior discount / coupon, etc? Or, can the charge be claimed legitimately for NZ taxation purposes?

    I use NUMBERs on my iPhone - it does track tickers (but sometimes can be unreliable). I could not get an app to cover my markets plus dividends etc....I run my own and wouldn’t consider an app now (mind you my workbook is large with many sheets and many years in it now).

    https://jstock.org

    Can keep track of multiple portfolios in different countries, add dividends, see ROI, etc... software has a nice desktop and phone app interface which can share portfolios through google drive.

    Used for a few years now very happy with it.

    1. Automated portfolio imports from other sources occasionally resulted in some weird bugs - e.g., share splits were calculated incorrectly and in one case it created duplicate entries for the same holding. This required some manual corrections from me and also getting tech support to fix the duplicate entry bug.
    2. Cash account tracking is only available in the highest and second highest tier, but for some bizarre reason it doesn't track growth in those accounts like other assets. So even though it records the balances going up or down as you enter them, it doesn't chart them or show any data on annual capital gain, etc. Bizarrely annoying - if it wasn't for this I could probably track all of my investments (shares, TDs, savings accounts, etc.) all in Sharesight. I've raised the issue with support and they told me it's just not a feature they have right now - I've asked if this could rectified and am awaiting a reply.
    3. Cryptocurrency support exists but only for ETH, BTC and a few other coins that seem to have been very arbitrarily chosen. I would have thought they could have added the top 20 or so from coinmarketcap and be done with it.

    If they could fix #2 above I'd be really happy. Right now the lack of #2 feels really annoying given that everything else is pretty feature complete.

    Actually I've got around #2 with a hack - happy for now!

    Good morning Airw0lf. . .

    What's your hack for cash accounts?

    I have a number of foreign currency accounts which drive me nuts. They go up and down like yoyos, and each month I debit the previous month's balance and credit the current balance.

    I don't particularly care about the NZD value, only the FX value - I just want to know how the monthend balances are tracking

    Thanks

    I created a custom investment - e.g., PIE Fund or unlisted company. Then added 1 share at the price of the "opening balance" in my account. I then just keep repricing this share as the balance in the account. It then all works like intended - you can see the balance go up and down and Sharesight works out capital gains, etc.
