my stock prices for the day download, but I see 'error downloading price history' on all of my securities. What causes that, how to correct and is it critical for price histories? thanks.

    Yahoo has discontinued support for the API that provided the automated price history download, hence the errors. You can try using Google finance for the historical prices, but that service only provides limited securities.

    You can, if you wish, manually download price histories and import them.

    Finding a service that offers automated download services for worldwide prices is a challenge, one that I suspect that can not be overcome.
