Not getting correct prices. They range from being off by several cents to dollars. I have an API code.
I have installed extensions that came with version 2019.3(1880).
The stock ones that should work are:
          Import List v14
          MoneyDance Updater v504
          Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater v1024
          Stock Glance v9
 I have selected AlphaAdvantage from Quotes and Exchange
Some EFTs are not in their database??? even though I have chosen the actual exchange
Prices vary from being off a few cents to dollars. Wells Fargo and Yahoo match.

Is there an additional extension I need??? What is Python?
I have invested many hours (days) in this and really want it to work. I am a 20+ year Quicken user.

Thanks in advance for your help

    Hi Edward

    Can you provide examples of the tickers that are not working correctly for you as well as the web address of the source you are checking the returned values against?

    Thank you for your prompt response.  .  I did write to you on a
    Saturday.(market closed)..I will check on Monday.  I had already
    corrected each price (history tab) before receiving your note.

    It may not be this week, but will keep your note and forward the
    requested  info.

    Attached are screen prints for closing prices as of 11-25-19
    Wells Fargo
    Also a print screen from MoneyDance portfolie view which had just been updated through the extensions tab from AlphaAdvantage. I do have the API code entered.
    Is there any way to get Yahoo prices? Both Quicken and Wells Fargo agree.
    Also AlphaAdvantage shows IEMG, HYLB, and USMV as invalid symbols. Yahoo does show the current price for these securities.
    I hope this is enough information for you to figure out why AlphaAdvantage numbers to not match Wells Fargo nor yahoo. I must be doing something wrong, just can't figure out what.
    Is there any way to sort? Sure would make it easier to compare to WF.
    I have looked at the reports. The edit tab does not have a way to choose which columns I want to see. Maybe I have not found the right place yet.

    Importing from Quicken is a nightmare. One file is now 3 and they do not match, but I will get that done by hook or crook. Then all should go well.....If I can only get correct closing prices.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hi Rita

    The are no screen shots attached to your post. See

    The link is to your Wells Fargo Online session that is no longer active,

    If the Quote and exchange rate updater does not work well for you try the free third-party Quote Loader. Both of the sources in the Quote Loader have good coverage of worldwide securities, Yahoo and FT.

    Both source returned the same prices for the three example securities in your post.

    See post 205 at

    Download the PDF attached to posts 205 and have a read.

    To get an overview take a look at the YouTube video by using the link on page 1 of the PDF.

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

    Hope this helps.
