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.

Quick Updates: Improved Portfolio Report & Dashboard
Last week, I spent some time improving Stock Screener. This week, I took time to focus on Portfolio Report &amp; My Dashboard. Apart from various tweaks here and there, I would like to bring your attention to two updates: 1) Customize Baseline: Previously, the performance of portfolios were compared against SGX:ES3 as the baseline. Now, you can customize and set the baseline to be any stock supported ...

More Visuals for Closed Positions & Portfolio Dividends
After the recent release of new visuals for portfolio dividends, there have been more requests regarding visuals' representations. They include the following: 1) Consistent Color: Previously, the same sector would be represented by different colors across different pie charts on the same page. I have since fixed that. Now, the same sector would be represented by the same color on the same page. 2) ...

Try Award-winning Trading Platform And Become Friend of StocksCafe
The first donations for StocksCafe came in May 2016. Although I was very thrilled to know that whatever I built is of enough value to people that many are willing to back it up, it was not my intention to build a paid product. However, the truth is StocksCafe is very dependent on donations as the ad revenue sustains only about 35-45% of current operating costs of StocksCafe. I have been thinking of ...
