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. Once in a while, one server would go down but the second server would keep StocksCafe running.

2) Faster
Overall, P99* has also dropped significantly. From 7-10 seconds to 2-4 seconds. (*[email protected] means that 99% of StocksCafe pages take 2 seconds or lesser to load)

3) Watchlist Improvements
Over the weekend, I have enabled "persistent" as an option for watchlist alerts. This means that users can keep alerts to be always on (even after being triggered).

In addition, Friends of StocksCafe can also update preferences here (i.e. check " Watchlist Alerts") to receive a separate email for every watchlist alert triggered.

What's Next?
Every now and then, I would receive requests to support more asset classes (e.g. bonds) or more stock exchanges (e.g. London, Australia). While I would want StocksCafe to fully support all stocks exchanges and all possible assets, it would be very costly both in terms of time and money.

A more plausible short term solution would be the ability to enable users to define and add any assets (or liability) into StocksCafe manually including transactions, their current value and upcoming payments etc. I aim to release this feature within the next 2-3 weeks.

Of course, in the long run, I plan to continue to add more support to different stock exchanges and asset classes wherever costs permit.

Happy investing!

Introducing StocksCafe Forum
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 ...

Frequently Asked Questions
I regularly receive questions related to StocksCafe and often the same questions are asked over and over again, hence I think it is time to consolidate them in one place. This article will serve as a placeholder for FAQ and I will update this article as I receive more questions. How do I use StocksCafe? While I constantly add new features to StocksCafe, they will be centered around two themes: Helping ...

Completed: Phase 2 of Hong Kong Market Integration!
After successfully migrating StocksCafe to the new domain and infrastructure, I have been working on further integration with the Hong Kong Market. Hong Kong Market Integration I am glad to share that phase 2 (of 3) of the Hong Kong Market integration is completed. This means you can now add Hong Kong stocks into your portfolio and/or watchlist, and of course also have access to all the associated ...
