I bought and sold certain shares on different exchanges and currencies, and wonder how to best deal with this in Sharesight.
For instance, I bought HSBC shares in GBP as HSBA.LSE and sold them in EUR as HBC1.FRA.
I can think of two ways of resolving this, but neither is really “clean and elegant”:
- Use the “merge holding” function to change HSBA.LSE to HBC1.FRA shortly before the sale.
- Manually convert the EUR sale price to GBP equivalent and sell as HSBA.LSE.
Is there a better solution that I’m missing?
