Our portfolios are very personal and sensitive information. While many users have generously shared them publicly, many more are not comfortable with opening up their portfolio and share with just anyone who visits sgxcafe.com. This is totally understandable. Even I only share my portfolio partially (portfolio is displayed without exact values).
Hence, I have recently added a followers/following mechanism so that people can now selectively share their portfolio with people they want to. And of course, you can choose who to follow as well as who can follow you.
1) To follow others, simply go to their profile page (e.g.
my profile page) and click on the "Request to Follow" on the top right corner.
2) To see who is following you, who you are following, and pending follow requests, simply go to
"Your Followers" page
3) Finally, you can adjust your
portfolio sharing settings and set viewing permissions for your followers at a level comfortable to you.
Start sharing your portfolio selectively now!
This is the first step of sharing information with selected people. More features will soon be added to allow you to only share information with your followers.

Updates: Day Change and Screener Email
This is a quick updates of two changes that I thought would be important/useful to communicate to everyone. Day Change Computation Previously, the day change shown on the main page of your personal portfolio was computed naively. It was simply how many shares of a stock you own at the end of the day multiply by the change in price (TodayClose - YesterdayClose). DayChangeForAStockPreviously = SharesYouOwnAtEndOfDay ...
The True Cost of Being Free
SGXcafe was originally built to help manage my own portfolio. I decided to share it freely when I realized it might be useful to many other retail investors like myself who do not have access to proper portfolio management tools. However, I was soon notified by SGX that SGXcafe requires appropriate licensing to continue operating publicly. At that time, under the encouragement of many users, I decided ...
