It appears that the stock price updates are not functioning. I have tried several times using the Alphavantage for Security prices but does not get any updates. This work in the past but hasn't worked for several months now.

Any suggestions

    Hi Francis

    What version and build of Moneydance are you running. E.g. 2019.4(1896). What build of Quote and Exchange Rate Updater is installed.

    Can you provide some examples of the ticker that are not working for you along with there security names so I can test?

    There are two methods within Moneydance for obtaining security prices automatically.

    The extension “Quote and Exchange Rate Updater found under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSIONS. Check you are running the latest build v1024. For exchange rates use the source European Central Bank. Alpha Vantage covers the US as well as some securities outside the US, but is very, very slow. It’s my understanding that the source IEX Trading no longer works.

    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.
