The current top request (i.e. the most likes) is for StocksCafe to support the London Stock Exchange (LSE), and I am very happy to share that StocksCafe now provides limited support for LSE!
What does limited mean?
It means that StocksCafe only has End of Day pricing data for LSE. We were unable to secure dividend nor fundamental data.
However, with this, you can enter transactions for London stocks and all the standard metrics for portfolio tracking can be computed. This excludes metrics that need dividend data as it would only be accurate if we have dividend data. However, you can help by entering the dividends just like how you would do for dividend edits.
So what does not having fundamental data mean? This mostly means that London stocks will not be available in screener.
Why purchase only End of Day data?
This is mainly due to cost. We could not find any provider for fundamental and dividend data that is within our budget. This is also the main reason why we have been delaying adding this exchange.
As users have expressed their willingness to add dividends manually and we also recently implemented the ability for Friends of StocksCafe to do so, we believe now is a good time to support this exchange.
We believe that with End of Day data and the ability to enter dividends manually, this should be able to satisfy most users’ needs!
Start entering your London transactions and also help StocksCafe by entering their corresponding dividends.
