    No excuse necessary, this is a really good question that has been bounced around by many people. I don't know the answer from personal experience, but I believe Moneydance supports non-U.S. stock exchanges by adding a suffix to the ticker symbol. This comes from the Moneydance FAQs:

    "To use a non-NYSE security listing, simply add the appropriate suffix to the end of the ticker symbol - for example, the Toronto exchange's suffix is ".TO" A full list of exchanges and their suffixes can be found here: http://finance.yahoo.com/exchanges"

    As far as banks, I'm not really sure. Check the list of supported institutions and see if your bank is listed there. I would strongly recommend you try the free trial before buying it to see if if works for you. Welcome and good luck.

    Jim, Until recently, it has seemed to be the case that non US institutions do not support direct ofx connections from their servers to 3rd party software. Moneydance has many non US users who simply download their transactions from their institution's website and then import the file. Several people have suggested that that may be changing (so that direct connections to non US banks are possible). We are actively exploring this.

    The London Stock Exchange is supported via Yahoo Finance as John suggested by adding a ".L" to the ticker symbol.

    Direct support for UK banks is practically non-existent. This is the banks' fault, not Moneydance's. Other financial software packages have attempted to work around the problem to some extent by capturing web login details and screen-scraping, with varying degrees of success.

    We just need to hope that UK banks will get their collective act together in this respect.
