I just realized that it has been almost a month since I last wrote in here! I wanted to drop a quick note so that people know that StocksCafe is still in active development :)

Apart from all the bug fixes and touch ups here and there, I have been spending most of my energy on upgrading the infrastructure of StocksCafe. Previously, everything about StocksCafe is basically packed into one server. As one server is easier to maintain, I tried to refrain from going beyond one by doubling the size of the server. Obviously, there is a limit to that. StocksCafe would sometimes crash or become extremely slow during peak hours due to the different processes fighting for resources (i.e. CPU and memory).

As such, I spent the last week working on splitting components into different servers so that there will be less fighting. Now, there are four servers working together to keep StocksCafe up and running! This will not only enable StocksCafe to be more stable, but also be more prepared for future growth.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you encounter any issues, especially in relation to crashes or very slow responses.

Happy investing!

StocksCafe Now Supports Any Asset!
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 ...

The True Cost of Being Free
SGXcafe was originally built to help manage my own portfolio. I decided to share it freely when I realized it might be useful to many other retail investors like myself who do not have access to proper portfolio management tools. However, I was soon notified by SGX that SGXcafe requires appropriate licensing to continue operating publicly. At that time, under the encouragement of many users, I decided ...
