    Hi Simon

    There are two methods within Moneydance for obtaining security prices and exchange rates 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 extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION

    For information see post 29 at

    Download the PDF attached to posts 29 and have a read.

    To get an overview take a look at the YouTube videos by using the links on page 1 and 2 of the PDF.

    If you provide say 3 or 4 ticker symbols and the full security names I will check if these securities are supported.

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

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Derek.
    I think I have solved the problem with Quote Loader.
    Quote and Exchange Rate Updater doesn't seem to work.
