Changelog

Fixes and improvements
28 February 2024 β€’ v1.21.0

This version introduces several enhancements based on recent updates, but it also addresses issues that were either caused or revealed by these updates.

  • All charts, tables, and summaries now employ the same calculation methods.

  • The Returns chart now shows the returns from the start of the selected period, rather than absolute returns. This change ensures consistency with the returns displayed in the Summary and the Table below.

  • All values and charts have been updated to correctly include the first day of the selected period. The value for the first day will seldom be zero, as it uses the previous day's data as the basis for calculation. This adjustment ensures that every day within the selected period is accounted for in a uniform manner.

  • Date pickers and dates should now function correctly across time zones that are significantly different from GMT, such as those in the US or Australia.

  • Unrealized returns will now properly exclude fees and be accounted only for the selected period.

  • Two new columns have been made available in the Portfolio section: 'Returns (1 year)' and 'Returns (max)', which can be added regardless of the period selected.

  • The transaction fields for Fees and Tax Paid will now accept negative values to account for situations where fees or taxes were adjusted at a later date.

  • You can now include capital, currency, and fixed returns in the Income Report if necessary.

  • Rows in expandable tables have improved indentation.

  • Group headers will no longer appear if all items within a group have been filtered out.

  • Split transactions are now visible again.

Central Bank currencies (EUR, NOK & PLN)
23 February 2024 β€’ v1.20.3

In some tax jurisdictions, you are required to use official Central Bank's foreign exchange rates. To complicate it further, you may be required to use a different date than the transaction date to get the rate ( πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± πŸ‘€ ).

Both are now possible in Capitally! Just type EUR.CB, NOK.CB or PLN.CB when selecting a currency and you will see all the numbers using the official rates.

In the Taxable Income Report you can additionally choose the Currency Date Offset.

Income Report and new tables
20 February 2024 β€’ v1.20.0

This update is huge! So much has changed that it feels almost like a 2.0 version. Let's dive into the new features then!

Income Report

Tax season is almost upon us, so it's high time for Capitally to offer proper assistance. Although full tax support is still in development, we've added a new Reports section where you can quickly review your current open positions, as well as returns from closed ones and fixed income.

The Explorer has been renamed to Portfolio and features a brand-new table

The new table not only looks much better but also includes several handy new features:

  • Positions can now be expanded to show lots, allowing you to view the returns from each purchase separately. When you navigate to an asset, you can see the individual lots.

  • Accounts can now be expanded to display positions.

  • Taxonomy trees are also expandable, enabling you to view the entire tree in one place.

  • A totals row has been added.

  • There is a Dense view option for fitting more rows on a single screen.

  • When sorting by a numeric value, rows are organized into buckets.

  • The column picker has been streamlined for easier navigation, with columns now grouped by category. This eliminates the need to reorder them, and you can toggle a column across all views at once with the Apply changes everywhere button.

  • The Returns and Asset Price columns now display the rate of return and a price trend, respectively.

  • The Invested Principal column indicates the change within a period, making it easier to track how much you've adjusted your position during that time.

  • All "Total *" metrics have been removed due to performance issues and limited benefits. You can still view totals by setting the "max" or using the new "hold" period.

  • The "Pairs (FIFO)" tab has been eliminated, with all relevant information now accessible in the Income Report.

  • Lastly, the Transaction Balance column now reflects the balance after the transaction, rather than before as it previously did.

Print and Export tables

All tables are now printer-friendly. Simply press Ctrl/Cmd+P or use the new export button to print or create a PDF for your records or tax accountant. From the same menu, you can also copy the data or generate a CSV or XLS file.

All exported versions will include the columns you've enabled and only the rows that are visible, allowing you to control the amount of data you wish to include.

Positions, Lots and Units...

There's some new terminology to familiarize yourself with:

Position Units - Units represent the smallest segment of a position, determined by an opening transaction and, optionally, a closing one. A partial sale will split the unit into two parts: a closed unit and the remaining open unit. These were previously referred to as "Pairs."

Transaction Lots - Lots consist of all units that were opened by the same transaction. Each time you make a purchase, you open a Lot. If you sell part of this Lot, that portion is considered closed.

Position - A Position is the aggregation of all units of the same Asset within the same Account. It reflects the total amount you hold of a particular Asset in a specific Account.

New look & feel

All icons have been updated with lighter, crisper versions. The buttons have been given a bit more depth to enhance visibility. The highlights have been made more subdued. And the table now finally resembles a proper table, with all numbers aligned to the right, maintaining a consistent two-digit minimum precision for currencies, and column widths adjusted to fit the content.

To accommodate the Reports section on mobile devices, the Add button has been removed from the menu bar. However, it remains accessible from the context menu in the Portfolio section.

Since the context menu includes options that are directly available as buttons on the desktop version, it is now only visible on mobile devices.

Additional periods to choose from

You now have the option to use additional time periods:

  • hold will apply the holding period of whatever you are viewing. It is similar to max, but hold ends when you closed all positions (or today if they are still open).

  • qtd stands for Quarter to Date, which is similar to mtd (Month to Date) and ytd (Year to Date).

  • 1q represents one quarter ago.

  • -6m +6m (or simply 6m 6m) selects a time frame of 6 months before and 6 months after the current date.

Additionally, all charts will now consistently use the same time period you select.

And more...

There's a lot of other changes under the hood that enable some awesome future updates. As always, there is also a host of minor bug fixes and quality improvements.

More metrics, new Periods selector and more
18 January 2024 β€’ v1.19.0

New Explorer metrics

Each metric tab will now display additional related metrics when you activate it. Among them are completely new ones like:

  • Average Asset Buy Price, also available on the asset's price chart

  • Unrealized Returns and their ROI - showing returns of currently opened positions

  • Open & Close Win Rates - what part of your currently opened or closed investments brought profit?

  • Fixed Income per Month and Day - how close are you to a salary sponsored by fixed income?

  • Fees broken down into cost of opening, closing, fixed-income and other

New Period selector

Switching time periods should be quick and easy. With the new selector you can pick one of the predefined periods, type in yours (eg. 2020 : 2023, 2020-06 : ytd, 2023-12), or choose with a date-picker. Then, you can quickly compare year-to-year or period-to-period by jumping back and forth with +/-1 buttons.

Finally, you can pin the ones you need most often to see them directly in the Explorer and Summary. And yes, YTD & MTD have finally arrived as well!

Returns calculation options

Everybody understands returns a little bit differently and now you can tweak how Capitally calculates them. You can choose the method and whether fees and taxes should be included. The options are available under the Cog icon next to the currency selector. You can change them just for one Explorer session or set as defaults for the project, so Summary will also use them.

And if you're looking for the benchmark selector in Explorer - it's now moved to the second row under Return Rate tab.

And more...

  • Fixed Income Yield on Cost is now more accurate

  • Assets will have Domicile Country defined in their taxonomies (handy for upcoming taxes!)

  • You can add the Cashflow column to the Transactions table if you want to see how much money you've put in or out within a transaction (includes cost/revenue, fees and tax paid)

  • Some asset's prices where not updating for the past week - sorry for that!

Capital & Currency Returns
10 January 2024 β€’ v1.18.0

Ever wondered actually how much you gain/loose from exposure to foreign currencies? Wonder no more. Capitally has now two additional columns - Capital Returns and Currency Returns which you can add to the table, plus you can check them broken down into sub-periods - just head over to Returns and choose the Periods chart.

Plus in preparation for the upcoming taxes support, you can now add Tax Paid to your transactions, to log taxes withheld from your returns by the broker.

Performance Improvements
8 January 2024 β€’ v1.17.0

We're kicking off the year with some serious performance improvements for larger projects.

If you have a large number of assets or transactions, you should see a big difference in how fast the prices are loaded and how quickly you can navigate across pages. πŸš€

Small Improvements
13 December 2023 β€’ v1.14.0

A lot of small improvements have been released today along with bigger, invisible groundworks needed for better market symbols support. You're asking for a lot of new ISINs to be added (keep them coming! 🀩). As reindexing them is a painful process we're aiming to change that.

  • Line graphs display the last value in a label for quick visual confirmation.

  • Nested taxonomies will have a separate breadcrumb for each level for quicker navigation.

  • Back button will only be displayed in installed apps - in browsers you can use the built-in one.

  • Summary layout has been cleaned up a little bit, with the default Benchmark set to SPY 500.

  • Transactions can now use dates as early as year 1950. Our currency data is currently limited to last 25 years, but if your transaction and asset are in Project's currency - you should be good to go.

  • Logging in should now be a little bit faster.

  • A Reset prices cache has been added to user profile - you can use it in rare cases where our data provider corrects historical price data.

  • Issues with exporting data and remote keys are now resolved.

  • We now accept Affiliates - if you have an audience you can share Capitally with, check out out affiliates portal.

Easier custom asset pricing
4 December 2023 β€’ v1.12.10

Improved Price Handling for Unlisted Assets: When there's no market price available for a certain date (for example, for pre-IPO or custom assets), Capitally will now use the price from your BUY or SELL transaction by default. Remember, you can still manually input a different market price at any time.

Refined Asset Search: You should encounter delisted symbols less frequently when searching for assets. Plus, both delisted symbols and assets will now be clearly marked in search results and the explorer.

Expanded Symbols and Taxonomies: We've added a plethora of new symbols and taxonomies. If you've noticed any missing from your portfolio, now's a good time to refresh and see the updates.

Improved Import Templates: Schwab, XTB, eMakler, and Bossa.

And some more minor enhancements and fixes...

Investment Categories, Regions, Sectors and X-Ray charts
20 November 2023 β€’ v1.11.0

Say hello to a new way to organise your investments πŸ‘‹ - taxonomies group your assets by categories, regions, and sectors. They're pretty flexible, so you can adjust or add to these groupings to match how you think about your portfolio. And, of course, you can organize any custom assets you've added in the same way.

To tie it all together, there's a new X-Ray chart that gives you a visual breakdown of your investments. You'll be able to see at a glance how your assets are spread across different regions, categories, accounts or any group you choose. It's kind of like having a map of your portfolio and it works with portfolios of any size. Plus, this chart works with all sorts of metrics, so whether you're looking at returns, allocation, or fixed income, you'll get a detailed picture.

Lear more about taxonomies.

Better Market Symbol Selection
12 October 2023 β€’ v1.9.2

When importing or adding new assets, it's now possible to quickly select an exact Market Symbol you want to use. By default, we'll pick the one with the longest history and highest quality of data, but if you want to track a specific one, here's what you can do:

  • Type in the market symbol with all UPPER CASE letters. You can add a market suffix to be more specific. Your market symbol will show up first on the list.

  • When importing from a broker, match the Symbol column instead of the ISIN for Assets

  • And/or click the ✏ icon in the asset dropdown to edit the asset however you need (or just verify the price chart).

Asset, Account and Transaction Tags
10 October 2023 β€’ v1.8.0

You can now organize your portfolio by tagging Assets, Accounts and Transactions with hierarchical tags! As Transactions inherit the tags of their Asset & Account, it allows for a truly robust categorization, like asset ownership (down to a single unit), availability, timing or anything you require.

Read more about tags in their help article or check them out in the demo.

Sign-in with Google and new encryption method
3 October 2023 β€’ v1.7.0

It's now possible to sign-in using a Google account (for new users only).

As we're using the User Password to encrypt the data, we've added a new encryption method for passwordles accounts that retrieves the encryption key from our server (stored separately from data). One advantage of this method is that you won't loose access to your data, even if you forget your password and loose your device. You can change your encryption in the Project's settings.

Notifications
29 September 2023 β€’ v1.6.0

You can now get a summary of your portfolio's performance delivered daily, weekly, or monthly to both your desktop and mobile devices.

You can choose which day of the week or the specific time you wish to receive them to seamlessly blend with your routine.

And as with everything in Capitally, all calculations are done on your device, ensuring your financial data remains completely private.

To get started, head over to Project Settings and enable Notifications!

Help Articles
25 September 2023 β€’ v1.5.0

We've added help articles and guides, ready for you right within the app or via this link.

Along with a usual side of bug fixes and improvements (released throughout the month):

  • Templates for StockMarketEye & Fidelity

  • Market prices for thousands of US & EU mutual funds

  • More market symbol suffixes for more accurate searching

  • Added current totals to tooltips in Explorer metric tabs

  • Aggregated Yield on Cost should now be accurate (cost-basis was incorrectly weighted if multiple different assets where involved)

  • Fixes to imports, benchmarks, explorer exports, asset editing and more

Performance Improvements
22 August 2023 β€’ v1.2.0

We optimized how Capitally handles live market prices, so now your investments will update quicker than ever.

Founders Subscription, Fixed Income and more!
16 August 2023 β€’ v1.0.0

Our closed beta is wrapping up, and we're thrilled to announce that Capitally is transitioning to a paid subscription model. This allows us to keep improving the app and provide awesome new features. There's a 14-day free trial, so there's ample time to try it out. For a limited time period the price is just €5/month or €50/year + tax. Plus all users who joined the beta can expect a thank-you discount code arriving in their inboxes soon!

Fixed Income

Diversifying your income just got a whole lot easier. Capitally now boasts its own Fixed Income section, allowing you to easily track and compare dividends, including rent returns on Real Estate and Bond interests. It's not only about market price anymore!

Explorer Filtering

Using a field above the Explorer table, you can now filter by typing. Items filtered out won’t be displayed in graphs and metrics, helping to narrow your focus faster. Want to match multiple different things? Use a comma (like "apple, microsoft"). To exclude a word, use an exclamation mark (like "etf !bond"). It’s that simple.

Custom Benchmarks

You can now use any asset - either owned by you or market-traded - as your benchmark. All you need to do is type its name when selecting a benchmark, and it's done.

Explorer Column Editing

The personalisation doesn't stop there! Explorer tables allow you to select and rearrange columns according to your preference.

New Explorer UI

Lastly, Explore section's UI is completely redesigned. It's now more readable, organized, and overall a smoother experience. I think you'll love it
