Problems With Investment Quotes

For years I have been using the Quotes extension. I have very few needs and this has worked fine until the last couple days. Now it fails and I see the following in my console:

alphavantage: getting history for GLD
Import error: skipping invalid line: "Information": "Thank you for using Alpha Vantage! This is a premium endpoint and there are multiple ways to unlock premium endpoints: (1) become a holder of Alpha Vantage Coin (AVC), an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that provides various utility & governance functions within the Alpha Vantage ecosystem (AVC mining guide: to unlock all premium endpoints, (2) subscribe to any of the premium plans at to instantly unlock all premium endpoints"
Import error: skipping invalid line: }

I checked and my API key is shown in the extension's UI.

Any ideas as to what is wrong here?

    Hi whitedavidp

    Try the extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION

    For information on the features of this extension and how to use see post 200 at

    Download the PDF’s attached to post 200 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.

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

    See screen shot of Quote Loader obtaining a price for the Ticker GLD assuming that the security in question?

    Hope this helps.

    It appears to be Alphavantage further restricting access, this has been a progressive development.

    In Q & ER try switching to using Yahoo or as Derek has suggested try Quote Loader.
