My stock prices, all of which are with the Australian Securities Exchange, are not updating. Previously, the prices used to update on daily basis. I had it on Google and Yahoo settings. Please assist me on how to fix this issue.

    Yahoo no longer supports free downloads. We have switched to a new provider.

    First you want to make sure you are running the most recent build of MD (1661).

    You can get that from here:

    Then you want to make sure you have the most current build of the extension V1012.

    Next you want to select Alphavantage in the security price menu. You need to get a free API key from Alphavantge. Just click the set API button to retrieve this.

    If you are not able to download quotes after this, please attach a screen shot o the extension window.

    Yahoo withdrew their free API pricing service at the end of October 2017, Google shortly after followed this lead.

    Moneydance has implemented a revised automatic retrieval of quotes in Moneydance 2017.6 using an updated Q & ER extension and a different service provider - AlphaVantage - who you need to get an API key from but the updated extension provides pointers.

    If you are on an older released of MD and do not want to upgrade you need to download prices and import them, this can be done in a number of ways but it does require some manual effort each time.
