TIK has improved the security on the use of unsigned extensions. This is in build 1899 which is still in preview mode. Once it is released for general use you will see a warning message on the summary screen if you are using unverified extensions. This included all of my extensions. I have worked with TIK to get my extensions verified which includes Quote Loader. These are now available on my repository in

To verify an extension I have had to make my source code available to TIK. The author of the back end of Quote Loader (hleofxquotes) was not prepared to do this and thus I have redesigned Quote Loader to be standalone. I would like to thank hleofxquotes for his work and help in making Quote Loader an extension of choice.

I have asked TIK to add Quote Loader to the list of available extensions. This is being considered.

DerekKent23 has written/updated a PDF on how to install and set up Quote Loader. This is accompanied by a couple of videos. These assume Quote Loader has been added to the list of available extensions. Before that list is updated please download the file securityquoteload.mxt from my repository ( and add it using the MD Extensions/Manage Extensions/Add from File. The updated PDF will be available shortly.

    I just updated Quote Loader to version 3209, and it worked great with the "Yahoo" source. Thank you very much to everyone involved for getting this fix out so quickly.

    I am trying to track about 200 securities. The new Quote Loader works fine for me using Yahoo and FT. Unfortunately, it fails using Yahoo HD. The first time I ran it, it quit reporting after 96 quotes from Yahoo HD. When I tried again about 40 minutes late, it failed after 57 quotes.

    In a previous version, Mike modified Quote Loader to prevent this from happening for large sets of securities. Would that be possible for the current set? For now, I need to make sure to check daily.

    Thanks again for your attention.

    Following up on my request, I'm attaching the CSV file of quotes from y latest FT inquiry. This should give you a good list for testing:

    @aforkosh I suspect that Yahoo HD is taking longer than before and the timers need tweaking

    Well has Yahoo! Finance changed something again? QL 321008 is getting errors trying to retrieve History Data (Yahoo HD). I believe this just started today as I've quotes from yesterday (5/28/24). update: Yahoo works fine but Yahoo HD errors out.

    Yahoo HD does not work for me (today) either. I'm hopeful its just "down", but given the past couple of months, who knows?

    Hi Mark

    Just tested Quote Loader build 321008 with source Yahoo HD and it now seems OK.
    So hopefully only a temporary down by Yahoo.

    Have Fun, Stay Safe.
