The "IB Bridge Module" allows you to connect the "Real-time visual Portfolio Manager (RTVisPM)" directly to the Interactive Broker(IB) Portfolio.
The RTVisPM Portfolio will automatically be updated as you open/modify/close positions in IB.
It can track/record automatically all your IB trades and provide a "Trade Event" spreadsheet for your accounting/analysis: Live_Evt.xls Live_Evt.csv 
With the PssStockTax module you can automatically match all buy/sells etc - from the "Trade Event" spreadsheet and create your Equity Chart etc and Position List.
