It has been two weeks since my last update. I am happy to share that most administrative issues with SGX and third party data providers have been handled. Next on the list would be to tackle the technical issues of integrating data that I have licensed into SGXcafe. I have already started integrating dividend information, since this is something numerous users have been asking me about. At this point of writing, you should already see some dividend information already back up. I will continue to add more dividend information in various places progressively.
Interestingly, my data provider packages fundamental information of stocks listed in Asia Pacific as one. Hence, I now also have some information about other exchanges apart from SGX. I will also be putting them up within the next 2-3 weeks.
In other news, SGXcafe recently saw a surge in usage thanks to a kind user setting up a thread for SGXcafe in HardWareZone.com. Thank you very much! I greatly appreciate any effort in sharing SGXcafe 🙂
Looking forward to the integration of company announcements too; sorely missed that. 🙂
Great news and looking forward to seeing SGXcafe going from strength to strength. Best wishes!
@rhin, unfortunately, company announcements will not be back in the short term. The pricing for that requested by SGX is well beyond the possibility to license it without charging users heavily. But I will try more creative approaches such as crawling pages of listed companies directly with their permissions or even better, asking listed company to also list their announcements in SGXcafe directly.
@amit, Thanks 🙂
Thanks for doing! Really appreciated! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
well maintained site with useful stuffs, thanks a lot 🙂
Will you be including dividends from retail bonds like FCL or Genting?
@suzyng, @jerry88, and @asteredo, Thanks 🙂
@jjj2323, another user have also asked similar question. I will spend some time to see if I can do anything about it. Btw, I will be releasing an small update where manual input of dividends will be possible soon. Hope that would help.
Evan, no worries. I have used the manual input and it works perfectly. You have a great site and i was just nitpicking.
