The Infinite Kind has recently released a new version of Moneydance for testing/preview. It is called Moneydance 2019 and can be found at https://infinitekind.com/preview. It has a number of changes in particular in the storing of Security Prices. In addition the base version of Java used to run Moneydance has been updated from Java 1.8 to Java 11.

With this in mind I have released a new version of the Quote Loader extension. It can be found at https://bitbucket.org/mikerb/moneydance-2019/downloads/.

IMPORTANT Do not run the old versions of Quote Loader with Moneydance 2019. Do not run the new versions with Moneydance 2017.

You can find information about Quote Loader for Moneydance 2017 in this thread http://help.infinitekind.com/discussions/investments/3771-third-par...

    Hi STO Yahoo

    Made a error in last post 150, corrected in this post.

    For the set I set up a data set with a base currency of Euro.

    The “:EUR” at the end of the ticker symbol is not required but it does no harm.

    I think you have the wrong ticker symbol for Morgan Stanley Global Brand Fund see if you can see your fund at
    https://markets.ft.com/data/search?query=Morgan+Stanley+Global+Bran...

    Also, you have the wrong symbol for see CARTERA BELLVER SICAV it should be
    ES0116561038
    your using the symbol for Fidelity Fund-Global Financial Services Fund

    For the four funds with the correct symbol see screen shot.

    Need more help just post.

    Derek, thanks man…funny, I was looking hard at how you managed to get the prices and noticed you had a different version of Quote Loader…researched latest versions for 2019 (which is different from previous version) and it now works . Thanks again

    Hi STO Yahoo

    Great, glad it’s working for you.
    If you had come back and said even with the correct ticker symbols it not working then I would have asked you to post the three build numbers you see at the top of the Quote Loader. They were not visible in the screen shot you posted.
    Hope the ticker symbols I traced helped?
    Did you find a ticker symbol for the one fund I could not identify Nota Sant Gobain?

    Have Fun

    No, don’t need price as San Global is a derivitive…not quoted, fixed price

    HI derekkent23
    Just picked up on this conversation. You were kind enough to give me some feedback last year, but unfortunately I didn't spot the reply until today! I must have forgotten to click the subscribe button.
    Sadly I have never had any feedback from Infinite Kind support staff. No idea why as I am using what appears to be standard issue software.
    The latest glitch is that having spent a couple of days clearing up historical quotes and updating other transactions, I find some of my stocks now show in Australian Dollars rather than UK pounds and pence. This has corrupted loads of historical data. As a consequence Mondaydance shows me to be a multi-millionaire - oh that it were true!

    I will now follow the documentation you show and see what I can do to recover what is a horrible mess.

    Hi alan.bannister

    Thing have moved on since your post in February 2018 when you were using 2017.6(1656).
    As you have found this thread you know the Quote Loader is now the way to obtain security prices.
    In your post I not sure if you are asking a question or just making a statement.
    The only way to change the currency that a security price history is stored in is to change the security currency itself. There are a number of ways to do this e.g. TOOLS -SECURITY – highlight subject security and double click and use the Currency dropdown. I have never heard of a case were Moneydance change a security currency by its self.
