1-on-1 with Evan Via Zoom


Two week ago, we experimented with opening up slots for users to arrange a 15-min Zoom meeting with me to ask me anything (or give feedback) about StocksCafe or QuantsCafe. It was a relatively successful experiment as we learnt a lot from listening to everyone’s feedback and questions as always. Thank you to all who took time out of their busy lives to chat!Here are 2 quick learnings to...

1-on-1 with Evan


Last weekend, I met up with a StocksCafe user for lunch and I realized that sometimes people simply live with some minor questions/issues that they are facing with StocksCafe despite having different ways to reach and ask or feedback it to me. So, I would like to experiment with this idea of allowing users to create a 15-min Zoom meeting with me to ask me anything (or give feedback) about...

Overwhelming Support


Being laid off is definitely not a good feeling. It somewhat reminds me of getting dumped. Lots of emotions and full of confusion 🙁 The silver lining is that I have received such overwhelming support after the previous post. It is easily the most commented and liked post! So many have volunteered to join the discussion, quite a few reached out to suggest ways to collaborate, and a few literally...

Are You Using The New Stock Screener? Why or Why Not?


Since the introduction of the new stock screener, I have received numerous requests to add more metrics and/or to add more ways to build the constraints so that different strategies can be easily implemented using the new screener. Hence the number of metrics have grown, from the initial 30 to the current 60+ different metrics covering both technicals and fundamentals. The number of ways to build...

SGXcafe Needs You!


About four months have passed since the major crisis faced by SGXcafe.

I have chosen the former, which is why SGXcafe is still operating today. Although it put a huge dent in my savings, I do not regret my decision, because in the last four months, the number of...

Help Shape SGXcafe’s Future


Note: There is a one-question survey at the end of the post, and your input is appreciated. Today, I am writing because SGXcafe has reached a crossroad. You might know that SGXcafe started out as a personal project, but I made it available for public use when I thought it might help other small retail investors like myself invest better. However, SGX recently contacted me and said that SGXcafe...
