First thank you for this great software.
I have an Interactive Broker (IBKR) account in CHF (my default currency in Portfolio Performance is the CHF currency as I live in CH) and I was wondering what is the best practice and/or steps in order to book the following which as final goal is simply to buy some VT:
- deposit in CHF to IBKR
- exchange my CHF into USD by buying USD/CHF (CHF=X) in IBKR
- buying the VT ETF in USD using my freshly exchanged CHF
Step 1 is easy and clear but then I am already stuck at step 2… Can PP do the currency conversion for me somehow or do I need to add the CHF=X currency as security into PP? Do I need multiple deposit accounts in PP? etc…
Thank you for your help.
