No man is an island. StocksCafe has come a long way with the support of many, many people and users.

Today, under the suggestion and support of an awesome user, urameshi85, I am very happy to announce a new StocksCafe initiative - StocksCafe Tutorials.

With new features being regularly added to StocksCafe but often not properly documented, the number one complaint from new users (especially new investors) is: StocksCafe is too complex to use.

Urameshi85 decided to help StocksCafe solve this problem by volunteering to head an initiative to crowdsource tutorials on how to use StocksCafe. We started by discussing how to approach the problem and he went on to write out guidelines and even two detailed tutorials complete with screenshots.

Please support this initiative by contributing tutorials or simply suggesting tutorials that you would like to see.

Happy investing!

Portfolio Changes: Current Cost vs Closed Cost
Wrong Total Cost Recently, a user highlighted that Total Cost in StocksCafe was computed wrongly and he (I assumed it's a he based on the username) is correct. I previously computed Total Cost as "Sum of [buy price x number of shares] for each stock currently in portfolio". However, this is inaccurate as he has pointed out, and I agree. Therefore I have changed the definitions of Total Cost and also ...
