Hello, I have the Quotes and Exchange Rates extension installed in Moneydance 2019.3. I also have an Alphavantage API key. Exchange rates seem to update successfully, but security prices either show as zero or don't update at all. Also tried the IEX Trading option for security prices but that didn't work either. Is there a more efficient way to update my security prices?

    I'm a fellow user.

    The Quotes and Exchange Rates extension (Q&ER) has a known bug with reporting a 0 price in the status bar when the correct price has been downloaded.

    My recent observations with AlphaVantage (AV) is that there appear to have been changes in the timeouts and that the Q&ER may need to revise its throttling to comply with AV policy.

    There appears to have been changes made by IEX so I think this source needs to be revisited to see if it can still be used.

    I would suggest you look at the latest version of Quote Loader. I would expect that to resolve the problems you are having.

    Thanks dwg, much appreciated. Alphavantage did work in the end with the
    Q&ER, but I installed QuoteLoader and it is much more efficient. Problem
    solved.
