StocksCafe Now Supports Any Asset!
28 Dec 2018
Regularly, I would receive requests asking, "When will StocksCafe include XXX?". They are typically other exchanges like London Stock Exchange or Australia Stock Exchange. Occasionally, it would be about commodities or other assets such as insurance, mutual funds, etc. Ideally, StocksCafe would be able to include at least all major exchanges, commodities, and funds in the future. However, I am not ...
StocksCafe API and Customizable Tax Rates
17 Dec 2018
StocksCafe API As StocksCafe continues to grow in term of the number of features and complexity, it is time to shift from Monolithic Architecture to Microservices Architecture in order to maintain flexibility and scalability among other advantages. In laymen terms, this simply means that instead of StocksCafe being one giant chunk of software, it is now broken down into many smaller manageable pieces. ...

Lost Last 3 Days of StocksCafe Forum
25 Nov 2018
I am very sorry but as the title indicates, the last 3 days of data on StocksCafe Forum (forum.stocks.cafe) are lost. Please rest assured that this did not affect other StocksCafe systems and/or data at all as they are on independent servers. I am now glad that I spent the extra money to keep them separated. Why?

Just wanted to share what's going on behind the scenes at StocksCafe lately. 1) More Stable I am happy to share that since the infrastructure improvements (to two web servers) a month ago, there have been no known downtime (no complains from users and no logs suggesting that) for StocksCafe website.

Introducing StocksCafe Forum
24 Sep 2018
I am happy to share that I have created a forum for StocksCafe. This forum will replace the Cafe feature in StocksCafe where users would post questions and start discussions. Why replace the Cafe feature? As the number of features in StocksCafe continue to grow, I am having a hard time maintaining all of them. Therefore, I have decided to "slim down" StocksCafe and maintain as little features myself ...
DrWealth + StocksCafe

For those who do not know, DrWealth is a financial education provider. I attended one of their online courses two years back and personally, ...

Previously, everything about StocksCafe is basically packed into one server. As ...
