Unable to import security prices

I have been unable to update my security prices. The message I get for all stocks is "Unable to get rate for (Coy) to AUD"

I used alphadvantage. I've update to latest version 2019.3. It's always been slow updating, but now all stocks return same message.
My workaround has been to download from yahoo, stock by stock then upload. I have tried quote loader but thought I should get to the bottom of why this extension isn't working.

    Hi Faye

    You are the second user to report that Alpha Vantage has stopped supported or has a temporary problems with securities traded on the Australian stock exchange.

    See https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/discussions/investments/5169-quo...

    Unless things change the best option is to use Quote Loader.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Derek, Do you know if you have the Quoteloader set to run daily & you don't turn on your machine for a few days. Will it keep all runs or only that day you turn back on?

    Quote Loader can only obtain prices for the current day, there is no ability to get historical data at this time.

    Hi Faye

    If you set up run daily but turn your computer off or let it sleep were no applications can run then no, Quote Loader can’t download data at the set time. All it can do when you turn on your computer and Moneydance is do an automatic Get Prices of the current quotes without the need to open Quote Loader.

    By the way as Alpha Vantage is offering a free service, I am not sure if Moneydance can do anything.

    Some user who cannot do a manual Quote Loader run every day, set up auto run, Quote Loader window closed, Moneydance running and just leave their computer on.

    Only automatic solution I can see at the moment.

    Hope this helps.
