By now, you might have heard about the Seedly Personal Finance Festival 2021 that will be taking place virtually on 10 April.

There is an impressive lineup of speakers, which includes heavyweights like Catherine Wood and Jamus Lim, representatives from many popular blogs/websites and *ahem* your very own Evan Koh :)

Even though StocksCafe has been around since 2015, this is the first time I will be giving a talk as a representative of StocksCafe. I am both very excited and nervous at the same time!

It would be great if you can support StocksCafe and me. There are two ways you can do so :)

1) Give me suggestions on what features or points you think I should cover, based on the title "Track Your Portfolio Today - Why and How".

2) Attend my talk and give me feedback so that future talks can be improved.

Additionally, I will be giving out 5 free tickets to the event for current paying Friends of StocksCafe. To keep it simple, I will give a ticket each to the first 5 people who are current Friends of StocksCafe that comment on this article with "I'd like a free ticket to the Seedly Festival!"

Even if you are not one of the first 5, do not worry, you can use the promo code "STOCKSCAFE40" to get a ticket at SGD 6 (or 40% off). With the amazing lineup, it is definitely a steal. Get the tickets or comment for a free one now!

Happy investing!

jenus78 - Hi, I am excited that you are joining the talk. I've already purchased the ticket myself and can't wait to be there. I have difficulties in tracking my portfolio. Maybe wold be ideal to show how to combine all investment assets in a single worksheet so that it's easier to have a glance? Like what to include in the tracker, I have been using excel inefficiently. lol. My aim is to track all the things that I bought so far and track their performance. Thank you so much in advance. =)

chaosuaykia - 1) you can probably talk about fees from the perspective of a person who is into passive investing. Since does a pretty good job at displaying transaction and its cost, this can be a small part of your presentation.

Personally I am an active investor, so I compared my portfolio against the three market's indices which I can purchase stocks from. So, stocks cafe's report function does provide an easy way to compare xirr, time weighted, volatility and max drawdown..if i am doing a bad job comparatively, over a long period of time, I should give up. So that is a way to look at things.

Although this is out of topic with your talk, I would say is largely responsible for my p&l over the years. Without the ability to screen stocks and look at the numbers year to year, I think I would do very poorly. So thank you.

evankoh - @all Thank you for the kind words!

@jenus78 @johnfmkong @chaosuaykia Thank you for your suggestions. I will try to see if I can incorporate them into the presentation/demo

@others_who_still_want_tickets Ha.. No more liao. All given out :(

zhiming1 - Congrats Evan, i am very impressed that you have created this product all by yourself.

Stocks cafe is good product for me as through the years, i have changed so many brokers, cdp and non cdp. Now with new brokers like tiger, moomoo coming in, more users will have this issue of some shares here, some shares there ( unless they do not like lower fees, free shares)

I also feel that we need to make it into a lively community which can help get more users. Users is key in all app.

Promote Stock cafe for its primary purpose which is simply for me to track my investments across different places.

For the past two days, some users have noticed missing information in their market update emails. Specifically, it is the Cost, Day Change, P&amp;L, etc of each portfolio that is missing. This issue affected users who have only a single currency in their portfolio. It has now been fixed and you should see those details in your emails again from today onwards. A big thank you to all users who took time ...

What Can StocksCafe Do For You?
StocksCafe is constantly evolving, and as I continue to add features to StocksCafe, even I am starting to lose count of them. Therefore, I believe that many users - especially new users - might miss out on many features that StocksCafe offers. This article aims to record all the features available in StocksCafe, and this article will be updated as new features are added. I highly recommend for you ...

Dividends Projection
A little more than a year ago, I added a feature that projects how much dividends you are likely to receive for the current year in your Portfolio Report. Although it is a simple feature with naive assumptions, it is actually one of the top most-liked features. Hence, upon the request of Friends of StocksCafe, I spent some time over the weekend to include dividend projection in more areas of StocksCafe. ...
