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.

In Phase 2, I will focus on features revolving around adding ...
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 ...
MemCached For A Faster StocksCafe
Since the drastic move to re-architecture StocksCafe and adding support for two new markets at the same time in April, StocksCafe website have became slower. I am aware of that and have been taking significant amount of time trying to improve it. To be very honest, I am not 100% sure what is the true cause although I am inclined to think that it is due to a summation of reasons such as poor database ...
