I am very happy to share that the integration of US fundamental data is complete and StocksCafe now fully supports US stocks.

You should now be able to see profile pages (e.g. Facebook) for US stocks, be able to screen for US stocks in screener and see related fundamentals in your portfolio profile or watchlist profile.

This brings the number of supported exchanges to four; namely SG, KL, HK, and US!

Apologies for taking quite a while (US EOD was added last December) to finish the integration of US fundamental data. It is mostly because US data is taken from a different provider than SG, KL and HK, and the way they store data and even what was stored is completely different, which means I had to essentially implement everything from scratch.

Furthermore, the number of active stocks in US is 10x that of SG. This means that tasks that took just three hours to run for SG now takes 30 hours for US. I actually spent the last week optimizing my code so that tasks will not take forever to complete. Now, all tasks take less than a couple of hours to finish! Yay!

With US exchange completed, one of my next two big goals is to integrate Tokyo exchange simply because I am staying in Tokyo, and also because that data is bundled in the package I bought from my data provider. The other goal would be to enable users to include any assets (including bonds, properties, stocks from not yet supported exchanges etc) into StocksCafe as this is one of the top requested features.

Please try out the US fundamental data and let me know if I am missing anything!

Happy investing!

hozy91 - Thanks Evan! Any potential for UK stocks in the future?

evankoh - @hozy91, UK stocks would have to wait a bit but will certainly be done sometime and hopefully by end of this year :)

One issue is I am not exactly sure where to get (cheap) fundamental data.

SGXcafe Andriod App Now Available!
A few weeks ago, I released an iOS app for SGXcafe. Naturally, Android users started to request an app as well. However, just like it was for iOS, I do not have any experience with Android development either. Hence, I jokingly requested a friend from work to build the SGXcafe Android app for me and to my utmost surprise, he showed me a first version the next day. Of course, SGXcafe mobile apps are ...

Windsor was the best performing mutual fund during his tenure and became the largest fund closing ...
