Past & Future of StocksCafe

What and When

Deciding what stocks and when to buy/sell can be tough. In 2019, StocksCafe aims to provide tools that can better assist you in making those decisions.

Upcoming in 2019

Start of Better User Experience

StocksCafe has always been focused on function over form, which explains the often ugly pages. However, recently I managed to "hire" a UX expert, my wife, to help me with beautifying StocksCafe. You should check out the newly improved login/signup pages and also the introduction page. More UX improvements will be gradually rolled out!

October 2019

Support for London Stock Exchange

StocksCafe now has limited support for London Stock Exchange. Limited because we only have End of Day data. Together with the ability to manually enter dividends, this is sufficient for all portfolio management features.

10,000 Registered Users!

Thank you all for supporting StocksCafe and letting StocksCafe be a part of your investment journey!

August 2019

Native Mobile Apps

Finally, StocksCafe has released native mobile apps that are not simply a browser wraparound. Hopefully this will significantly improve StocksCafe's mobile experience.
