Globalise to include international stocks.
Allow foreign stocks in screens / watchlists / portfolio
We’ve now launched the European-wide plan (from Amsterdam to Zagreb) – http://www.stockopedia.co.uk/plans/.
We’re discussing whether to add the US or Asia next – comments welcome: http://help.stockopedia.co.uk/knowledgebase/articles/80790-which-geographic-markets-do-you-cover-
I agree with gfourmoney regarding the pricing. I would prefer to be able to select an individual european country (thereby being the same price as the UK) rather than pay that amount for coverage of countries I would never invest in. I rarely invest in any other countries aside from the UK, Germany and Italy.
Could you do this?
In my opinion your European data plan is too expensive. If you intend to bolt on each region at those incremental prices it will be way more expensive than other services available.
You need to have funds that can be purchased here but may not be listed in the UK. For example the RWC Enhanced Income fund does not show up because it is a Luxembourg Sicav
Just allowing us to include foreign stocks in portfolios would be a helpful start to those who have shares in US or other stocks and need an accurate record in the portfolio section
North America, then take a view on whether the governance/accounting standards have caught up enough to make China etc. worthwhile. If not Latin America, especially Brazil, would be a good option.
How many years of financial data will you offer as part of the pan-European product (10 years would be ideal)? Also, which stock markets will be covered? And, lastly, what will be the source of the fundamental data?
UK preference shares, USA stocks, then Australia, Canada & Europe. Asia LAST because we are still waiting for their accounting standards to catch up to "barely acceptable". ETFs are the best way to play Asia. By the time you get to Asia (I suppose I mean China) they should have got their act together.
My choice (after Europe) will be Asian/Australian and then Canada (and last USA); the reason is that there are already many tools/sites focused on the USA market that use a screener as the base to find investment ideas.
I suppose that your are already familiar with AAII and especially with IBD/MarketSmith (I like their automatic "play" of the results of a screen list); for some additional ideas maybe you want to look also at Portfolio123/Stockscreen123.
Moreover to make it Stockopedia the best tool for the global stocks individual investor you should try to provide (at a cheaper subscription cost!) as a wide coverage as CapitalCube (I like their detailed reports and especially the graphics that compare some key values to a (customizable) list of peers.
Can you advise if European stock will definitely be added by the end of this year? I am looking to subscribe but will need European and foreign stock coverage at some point (Canada, Australia for example).
Euro stocks would be a big plus but bonds currencies and commodities would spread you too thin. This is a stock site, after all.
Europe is of less interst to me than HK, Canada and Australia. However, as rpcroft suggests, simply a facility to creat an "anchor" (or skeleton) for international stocks, to link discussions to would be very useful.
Maybe there could be some way of users adding instruments not currently covered officially? Prices could be updated whenever users can be bothered to do it (e.g. every couple of days or weekly) and you could reset the price to zero if not updated for a longer period, e.g. 1 month.
This could be useful for foreign stocks, more obscure instruments like options, rights issues, pork bellies, ...
Why must admin upkeep the names?
Cant users themselves add the names then discuss them, grow the wiki , provide links to data or if users can find it, have free imbedded content from other sites as "data"
