    Hi Matt

    You have provided very little information on which to work out the course of your problem.

    Make sure you are running the latest build.

    To check the build, you are running see HELP – ABOUT MONEYDANCE. e.g. 2017.10(1706)

    Also check you are running the latest build of Quote and exchange rate updater v1024.

    There are two methods within Moneydance for obtaining security prices automatically.
    The extension “Quote and exchange rate updater. For exchange rates use the source European Central Bank. If your securities are in the US try IEX Trading first, if that does not support a security try Alpha Vantage. Alpha Vantage also cover some securities outside the US, but is very, very slow.

    If the Quote and exchange rate updater does not work well for you try the free third-party Quote Loader

    It has far wider coverage and is fast.

    Download the PDF attached to these posts and have a read. To get an overview take a look at the YouTube video by using the link in the PDF.

    Let us know how you get on or if you need help just post.

    Hope this helps.
