Note: This feature have since been removed due to low usage.

We all have a limited amount of time. Are you spending that time wisely? And are you spending more time than you should be scrolling through Facebook? I am :(

In an attempt to change that, I thought that if I'm going to scroll through something on my phone, I might as well be scrolling through information on companies that I have invested or are about to invest in.

Hence, over the weekend, I added a new feature in SGXcafe that mimics social networks' popular feed system. However, instead of populating it with cat videos, It will be populated with company information instead.

For logged in users, information like latest news, upcoming dividends, and announcement releases for companies that you have in your portfolio or watchlist will be shown in your feed as SGXcafe receives them.

For non-logged in users, trending news and stocks (by volume) will be shown for now. Hmmm... perhaps I should also add market information like STI and ES3 for all users, logged in or otherwise.

As usual, this is only the initial version that I managed to code over the weekend. I will continue to improve this feature in the coming days. I am looking forward to your feedback on how it can help you better.

Happy investing!

Insurance is Part of Financial Planning
Note: I am a strong believer of insurance but not insurance linked investments/savings (or however they name it). I would like to believe that I can invest my own money better :) What are your thoughts on insurance? Do you actively find out about how to best insure yourself and your loved ones? Or do your insides shrink up at the mention of "insurance", as you avert your gaze and try to find a way ...

New Landing Page
One main feedback from new users of StocksCafe is that there are too many features and it can be too overwhelming to start using StocksCafe. Therefore, I have designed a simple landing page which hopefully will help new users warm up to StocksCafe. You can find the new welcome page here. 1) As you can see, there is still free space for more icons. Please suggest what other information you think would ...
