Foliofn - LC / Re: Folio API note selling
« on: May 24, 2018, 03:36:40 PM »
I haven't tried it yet but I wouldn't be surprised if there were bugs.  There's issues in the Orders Listing too. 

FolioFN not actually listing their notes for sale even though they are in your open sell orders

Same here.  I contacted LC about it and they just pointed me back to the documentation....

Investors - LC / New API feature requests
« on: February 20, 2018, 11:21:01 PM »
There's a link at the bottom of the Notes page which lets you download every note you've ever owned included the ones you've sold.  I find it useful in managing my account to be able to reconcile the total account stats with the underlying details.  It's also useful to see how much of a discount I had to take and what the trend was.   As far as I can tell, you can't get that data from the API even though they just revised the folio API.  Its just available through the manual download. So...

Is there a way to request new features or resources on LC's API? Do they have an email for developers to use to get past the front line customer support?

Its a new endpoint.

LC has added new endpoints to their folio API.  You can now pull all notes updated in the past X minutes (you supply the X).  That should drastically reduce your download time if you pull only what has been updated in, say, the past 1 minute.  They're still working on the documentation so it's not on the site yet.  The API is working so you can ask them for the docs.

the higher the score of a note the less likely the loan is to default

How do you relate profitability with the default risk? In theory, the interest rate should already track with the default risk. Taking greater risk is rewarded with higher returns and conversely investing in lower default risk should have lower returns.  You may be able to arbitrate if you can beat LC's algorithm, but they've been getting better with time. 

Is your method an improvement on LC risk ratings? Or is the portfolio score giving a risk adjusted expected return?

I ask because I've toyed with doing something similar myself and I'm curious how you went about it.

One thing we have been really working on is the overall portfolio score (portfolio health, if you will).  I was wondering if anyone would mind creating their account and posting their LC Picks Portfolio Score. 

Chris-  can give a little more background on the portfolio score?  I'm curious what you are measuring and how to best use it.  Undoubtedly there are aspects that you cannot share and I wouldn't ask for the algorithm, but can you give us a short sales pitch on why to use it?

When you say endpoint, do you mean the link for downloading the csv file or is there now a true endpoint?

It'd be nice if we could use a filter before downloading the entire ~70mb file each time.

I had a few defaults early on so one metric I track is how close I am to getting back to even.  I take the ratio of interest received to the defaults and principal in late loans.  Just recently getting over 1.0 means that I've received more interest than what I have/will write off.

Interest received / (Default + Principal >31 days late) = Ratio

Introductions / Re: Members' Thoughts and Experience with StreetShares
« on: October 19, 2017, 04:21:28 PM »
I've only been on StreetShares for a few months and it's been a positive experience as far as returns go.  The only downside I've seen is that with such low loan volumes I have idle cash even with auto invest on.  You either invest in everything that comes out or keep the cash idle.

My Greasemonkey script (LCAC) adds ....

I've never heard of Greasemonkey before but this looks like a step in the right direction.  At least I won't have to merge several files together anymore.  Thanks for pulling it together.

Is it possible for the output to be a downloaded .csv instead of sending the results to a new tab?

Correct- I'm looking for the account history.  Ideally I'd be able to get the history in 1 big download just like you can do for the order history. I'm pretty sure the LC website doesn't support this but is it possible in any of the 3rd party apps?

Investors - LC / Easier way to get account history?
« on: June 12, 2017, 03:10:50 PM »
Is there an easier way of getting your account history rather than regularly downloading the data in 30 day increments?  I'd like to use that data to track loan level cash flow against my projections but it's tedious to do on monthly basis.

I've asked LC if they'd add account history to their API and their response was essentially 'thanks for the suggestions but no'.  Is there community interest in getting this added to the API?

Does anyone have any suggestions? 

General Lending Club Discussion / Re: SAS Analysis
« on: April 03, 2017, 05:41:24 PM »
I second Fred. I use R for all my analysis. Unless someone else, like employer, is paying for me to use SAS, I don't see any reason to learn/buy/use SAS. The R packages and community is terrific to get most analysis done.

I built an R package which makes it really easy to work with the LC API.  You can read the Quick-Start guide and full documentation at
