Is stock download working at all in MD 2019?

I realize that the stock download extension has been funky for a while due to the rate limiters by the stock data providers. However, it was working until I upgraded to MD 2019. MD 2017 would download the data slowly (one stock every few minutes I guess), which suffices.

However, with MD 2019, nothing appears to updated no matter how long I leave MD running. Is this affecting others?

MD devs: can we please fix this?

    Hi Jeff

    The free third-party Quote Loader for 2019 is working. Last test was with 2019.0(1839).

    See Post 15 at

    Download the PDF attached to post 15. In the PDF is a link to a YouTube video to get a overview of the Quote Loader.

    If you have any questions or problems just post.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm a fellow user,

    Jeff without knowing the versions and builds of MD and the Q & ER extension it is difficult to help, Some versions of MD2019 did have problems downloading quotes some have not

    MD2019 is still beta software so problems have to be expected.

    dwg: I'm on 2019.0 (build 1839)

    derek: Thanks but no thanks. You did not answer my questions. I'm aware of the external loader, but do not like the extra step of manually loading every time. I rather use the main extension, even if it takes more wait-time (I just leave MD running).

    , but have no interest in it. I want the primary extension to work, even if it's as slow as it worked before, I expect it to work.

    I know it worked on 1838, 1839 is still downloading here.

    Hi Jeff

    Your decision.
    But for information in the Quote Loader there are no more manual steps than there are in the Q & ER, perhaps you are thinking of the old hleofxquotes program.

    I just ran through an update at a speeding snail pace ...

    Q& ER 1024 ran without error I note that the data for the 7 & 8 Jan is identical, This appears to be a MD issue as a direct inquiry to AV only had data up to the 7 Jan.

    AV seems to be at least 24 hours behind on Australian share prices. For a company wanting to make money on selling data access they seem to be pretty poor at providing data - The ASX makes the data freely available with a 20 min delay.

    Thanks dwk. At some point today it started working so I guess it was there may have been something wrong yesterday.
