I have an ETF that is in USD but is listed on the London Stock Exchange. However, there is no option to select London Stock Exchange (USD). Which I'm guessing is what I need?

    You can double click the exchange filed to bring up an edit box and edit the currency.

    This may have an effect on how the price is reported based on the base currency of the investment account if held in a currency other than US$. If you could let me know the name of the ETF and the base currency of the investment account, i can mock up an account and see if editing the currency in the exchange field will have the desired effect.

    The security in question is IShares Corporate Bond High Yield. It's listed on the UK Stock Exchange, but is denominated in dollars. The EPIC is HYLD.

    I mocked up a data file and tried this out. The security will only download and be held in dollars if both the security and investment account is set to dollars. Otherwise if you set up the currency of the security to US $, but the investment account is set to GBP, the program will convert the downloaded price to match the currency of the account.
