Migrating from Investoscope to StockMarketEye
Moving to StockMarketEye from Investoscope is easy. Since v4.0.15, StockMarketEye has support for importing Investoscope CSV files. Simply export your transactions from Investoscope into CSV, then import the CSV file into StockMarketEye.
Export your Investoscope transactions to CSV
For each individual portfolio you have in Investoscope, follow these steps to export its transactions to a CSV file.
- Select the individual portfolio from the list on the left-hand side of the Investoscope window.
- Use the menu: File -> Export -> All Transactions to CSV…
- Choose a name for the file and where you want to save it, such as your Desktop.
- The CSV file is ready to be imported into StockMarketEye. No changes to the file are necessary!

Import the Investoscope CSV file into StockMarketEye
Importing a CSV file into StockMarketEye is described in our User’s Guide.
However, please take note of the following when importing the Investoscope CSV file into StockMarketEye.
- In step #2, in the import window, click on the “CSV Columns Format” dropdown and select “Investoscope 3”.
- In step #2, click on the “Advanced CSV Options” button and be sure that the separator is “Comma”. However if you have verified in the CSV file that the separator is a different character (such as a semi-colon), select that character in the Advanced CSV Options window.
When you have finished the import, your Investoscope portfolio has been migrated to a StockMarketEye portfolio. You’ll need to repeat the export/import steps above for each Investoscope portfolio that you want to have in StockMarketEye.
