If the Quote and exchange rate updater does not work well for you and you are running Moneydance 2019 try the extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION.
I have tested your ticker symbol ASML and both sources in Quote Loader return an up to date price, see screen shot for the source Yahoo.
Note: if you select FT as a source you need to select NASDAQ as the exchange under Exch Mod. The reason for this is ASML is traded on a number of exchanges in different currencies.
I am on MD 2019 and saw some posts about Quote Loader, but it sounded like
there were some securities it did not cover, like ETFs. I guess my next
step is to remove Quote and Exchange rate Updater and give it a try.
Thanks for the response!
Coverage for EFTs should be similar as coverage for Shares as they are both traded on Stock Exchanges.
Coverage of Mutual Funds will generally be spotty since they are not traded on any exchange and therefore there is often not a central source for data on them. Some are internal to a Financial Institution and some are wholesale funds and are thus only able to be purchased by other funds.
I have been using the Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater (QERU) extension and have noticed that it does not: 1) update all mutual funds and ETFs in the portfolio (which I see can happen with this extension) and 2) quit updating several after 2/21/20 (MFs, ETFs and stocks (e.g. most Fidelity funds in my portfolio and CSCO among others). The latter is puzzling even if the prior has been previously documented.
Am wanting to try Quote Loader.
Question: Must one remove QERU before installing Quote Loader?
It is usually less confusing and removes the possibility of both trying to update prices if you do remove Q & ER. Strictly peaking it is not necessary however provided you set it not to update anything, Some of us that do testing will have both installed but will make sure one or both do not automatically run, but as we are using it with test files it probably does not matter much for us.
Err I think you had better shelve that thought, that one could get you into trouble.
The closest you can currently get to doing this is using Quote Loader with its ability to set a quote source on a security by security basis. Overall I expect Quote Loader to offer the better coverage.
In the long run there are discussions around bringing the two tools together and combining the best of both, but I think that is a ways of at this stage.
