How can I track certificates?

Hello to everybody!
I started using Portfolio Performance years ago and I always had zero problems, it literally changed my life.

A week ago I found an interesting investment certificate I’d like to buy but I don’t know how can I track it on Portfolio Performance. Anyone have any idea? I’ll leave the ISIN in case someone find it useful: XS2226707482

Just having it on Portfolio Performance at the historic price it’s enough for me, I can even update it manually. Any idea?

Thanks a lot!

PS: Sorry for my bad english, it’s not my main language!

An easy question without an easy anwser, i think.

If you google for XS2226707482 you find some results, one of these is

Open the URL in Firefox,

and click on “Interactive Chart”

press Crtl+Shift+i, it opens the developer tools

now click on “1 YEAR” and you will see 2 lines in the tool

choose the line with “GetPricesWithVolume” so you can see what the browser has done

copy the results for later usage

POST /charts/services/ChartWService.asmx/GetPricesWithVolume HTTP/3
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:98.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/98.0

with these results, lets build a curl request (if you use Windows, see curl for Windows)

curl -d '{"request":{"SampleTime":"1d","TimeFrame":"1y","RequestedDataSetType":"ohlc","ChartPriceType":"price","Key":"I06613.TLX","OffSet":0,"FromDate":null,"ToDate":null,"UseDelay":false,"KeyType":"Topic","KeyType2":"Topic","Language":"en-US"}}' -H "User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:98.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/98.0" -H "Accept: application/json, text/javascript, */*; q=0.01" -H "Accept-Language: de,en-US;q=0.7,en;q=0.3" -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, br" -H "Referer:" -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" -H "X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest" -H "Content-Length: 236" -H "Origin:" -H "DNT: 1" -H "Alt-Used:" -H "Connection: keep-alive" -H "Sec-Fetch-Dest: empty" -H "Sec-Fetch-Mode: cors" -H "Sec-Fetch-Site: same-origin" -H "TE: trailers" -X POST --compressed --output XS2226707482.json

the option --compressed is used for automated unzipping the response from the server

in the file XS2226707482.json you can find everything you need to build an import.csv for PP

$ cat XS2226707482.json 

1617148800000 is a timestamp, Tuesday, 30. March 2021 00:00:00
958.86 is the price of your interest, but which of the three? You have to figure it out :wink:

Thanks a lot for the kind and professional answer!

Unfortunatly, 958.86 it’s not the price of the certificate. I’d like to import in Portfolio Performance just the 900.42$ you see at the beginning, how can I do?

900,42 was the actual Price at the time I shot the screen.

is the first part of the file, the last part looks like


1648425600000 ==> GMT: Monday, 28. March 2022 00:00:00

You has asked for the historic prices, for the actual price I have no anwser.
