I haven't been receiving price updates for my Australian share portfolio since May 2020. I have tried with 'Extensions' but nothing works. Can you help?

    I'm using Mike Bray's Quote Loader (thanks Mike!!) on MD 2021.1(3033) against the ASX with great success.

    Here's a link:

    I've attached a screenshot of some .AX shares that I'm following, and here's my past 365 day's prices updating automagically on opening my MD data set. . .

    If you need more help dwg and Mike Bray are very knowledgeable on QL and often post here, so just ask! :-)

    If your using a different method or other extension I'd recommend Quote Loader unreservedly.

    If you are using the Quotes and Exchange Rate extension, I would not be surprised if it stopped working. The source it uses, AlphaVantage, has been quite unreliable for quite a while and appears they have stopped supporting some Exchanges.

    If you have been using Q & ER I would recommend de-installing it and using Quote Loader. QL has proven to be very reliable and has many more options.

    The basic information on Quote Loader and pointers to the PDF file on its usage can be found at:

    You can install it using the Manage Extensions menu option
