I am using the latest version of Money Dance 2017.8 (1691) and the Alphavatange extension for stock quotes. I am using Opensuse leap 15. The extension fails to get quotes on over half of the stocks.

    Hi Steven

    It appears that Alpha Vantage are now limiting the number of quote request they accept per minute or at least that’s what their web site states, see https://www.alphavantage.co/premium/

    I think the current Q & ER extension v1018 works on the principal of a 15 second delay after 5 connections. Connections being a 1.5 second intervals. Approximately 15 connections per minute. Perhaps the Q & ER request rate needs to be slowed down further. I you are not already using build v1018 update to it as some users find it helps.

    Alternatively, there is a free Stand-Alone program that is reliable as it does not suffer from a request limit. It downloads stocks and funds from many stock exchanges as well as exchange rates. The quotes can then be imported into Moneydance. See post 236 in this thread http://help.infinitekind.com/discussions/investments/3036-third-par...

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for responding. I am running V1018. I was able to get HleOfxQutoes to work and create a CSV file for MD. How do I import this file into MD. I could not get the correct field choice when I did File->Import .

    I was able to get the update the stock price after importing by going to each stock history and clicking on new. Go figure.

    Hi Steven

    You need to use one of Mike Brays extensions.
    See page 4 of the PDF.

    The symbols that appear in the Converted Prices window in the stand-alone program must be the same as used in the Moneydance. If you are having problems with this aspect just post.
    In any event when you follow page 4 of the PDF is you run into problems just post.
    We will sort out any issues you have and get you up and running.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Steven

    I think our posts crossed.

    Not sure I understand the method you were using to import the data from the CSV file exported from the stand-alone program?
    Were you using the recommended method, that is one of Mike Brays extensions?
