Hello,
I have investment accounts with European securities with the following type of ticker symbol: FR0010844365 or LU0565135745.
They are not updating with the regular Quotes and Exchange rate extension.
What is the way to update those international securities automatically?

    Hi Patrick

    Try the extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION
    As you can see from the screen shot Quote Loader returned prices for you two test Securities.
    The test was with a base currency of British Pounds.
    You did not state the base currency you are using but Quote Loader will work equally well with other base currencies.

    For information on the features of this extension and how to use see post 106 at
    https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/discussions/investments/4914-the...

    Download the PDF attached to posts 106 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.

    Hope this helps.

    derekkent23,

    Thank you very much for that information. I will play with it a bit but it seems to be working great!
    If everything works fine there, do I need to keep the “Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater extension” then?

    Regards.

    Hi Patrick

    I would recommend you Remove Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater extension from under EXTENSIONS - MANAGE EXTENSIONS.

    Have Fun, Stay Safe.

    Thank you. So far so good.

    Everything is working great but only 2 stocks that are not updating (LU0133061175 and LU0171283459) but it is not a big deal.

    Hi Patrick

    Sorry it does not look like these two funds are supported by Quote Loader.

    Have Fun, Stay Safe.

    Hi Patrick

    Just a thought on the Blackrock fund.
    It is also traded as a USD fund under LU0072462426 which FT supports.
    See two screen shots.
    Not sure what your base currency is but in my test it is British Pounds.
    The first Blackrock set up as a Sterling Fund.
    The second Blackrock set up as a Euro Fund.
    Quote Loader returns prices in USD and the converts using appropriate exchange rate.
    In both cases the returned value equates very closely to the Euro price for LU0171283459 I found on the web.

    May not be the way you want to go, just a thought.

    Have Fun, Stay Safe.

    I’ll work with what you found and it will be fine. My base currency is Euro so I don’t see any problem there.
    Thank you again.
