US Market Information Updates
23 May 2018
I have not worked much on the US market beyond adding EOD data and other basic features, and I’m happy to announce that I finally had some time to improve as well as add a few new features to it. 1) Similar Stocks - You can now see other stocks that are similar to the one you are viewing (e.g. Google) on the right hand side (in desktop view). 2) Shared Portfolio Statistics - You are now able to see ...
New Landing Page
18 May 2018
One main feedback from new users of StocksCafe is that there are too many features and it can be too overwhelming to start using StocksCafe. Therefore, I have designed a simple landing page which hopefully will help new users warm up to StocksCafe. You can find the new welcome page here. 1) As you can see, there is still free space for more icons. Please suggest what other information you think would ...
Personalize Your StocksCafe
12 May 2018
Everyone is different and uses StocksCafe differently. This is why there are many ways to customize StocksCafe so that it best suits your usage. To make StocksCafe work the best for you, I strongly encourage everyone to go though the different customizable options available if you have not already done so. Here are the six main customizable categories, along with the recommended settings: Email - In ...

One thing I wished for in StocksCafe is the sharing of knowledge and information between users. It was the main motivation of having "Cafe". However, it has not been as lively as I had hoped for. I have made some changes to it recently, hoping to encourage more sharing between users. 1) Less Clutter - I have removed and rearranged sections in order to create a simpler and cleaner look. 2) Searchable ...
Investor's Resource: Uncle Stock
30 Apr 2018
A user recently recommended a stock screener website, Uncle Stock, to me. Upon checking the site out, I found that it's an extremely comprehensive (able to screen all major markets) and powerful (able to screen from >100 metrics) stock screener website. Overflowing with information, this website might be daunting for new investors to navigate, but will prove to be a mighty tool for those who know ...

In the next few months, there will be many AGMs for shareholders to attend to learn more about the recent financials and future plans of the company. As some users have suggested, it would be nice to have a venue to learn when and where these AGMs are happening. And perhaps more interestingly, to be able to share thoughts, consolidate questions, or simply to know who else would be attending them. Therefore, ...
StocksCafe Turns 3!
31 Mar 2018
March is the birthday month of StocksCafe! In the blink of an eye, StocksCafe has already been around for three years! Thanks to the support of many, StocksCafe would very likely be around for many more three years to come. Thank you! StocksCafe's next goal is to be profitable enough so that Evan or someone else can be working on it full-time! New Features You might have realized that new features ...
How to Install StocksCafe App
6 Mar 2018
Regularly, users would independently request for an iOS app to be built for StocksCafe. Due to limited resources, it is unlikely I can satisfy this request in the near future. However, a recent feature request made by a Friend of StocksCafe actually made me realize that I could create a pseudo app for StocksCafe. It is to simply create a shortcut (which looks like an app) on your phone that will start ...
1 Mar 2018
Happy Lunar New Year! I apologize for not having any updates of late. While I continued to maintain StocksCafe and work on bugs, I took a short break from developing new features during the CNY period. In any case, I am back and the first new small feature is the ability to perform simple price simulations. Previously, whenever I wanted to find out things like what my P&L (or current yield) of ...
Recent Updates: Email Timing and Others
22 Jan 2018
While StocksCafe is constantly fixing bugs and adding new features, once in a while, I would like to highlight and explain some new features or changes. The following are recent updates which I believe deserve to be highlighted: 1. Market Update Emails Market update emails is one of the more popular features in StocksCafe. In the past, it was catered solely for the Singapore market thus over the weekend, ...
"Overall, this is a simple and easy to use platform. Its free to use so no harm giving it a try if you're an investor also."
SG Young Investment
"Previously, I have tracked my portfolio using Excel and VBA to get live stock quotes from Yahoo Finance. However, that was a tedious and awkward way to track and share your own portfolio (compared to using SGXcafe)."
The Magic Formula
"I found SGXcafe to be easy to navigate and has all the useful information at one glance."
"100% local made website for your portfolio needs"
"After fiddling with it for the past week, I have been impressed by the intuitive, user-friendly and aesthetically-pleasing features on its platform."
