I live in New Zealand and would like to download NZ share prices. "Quotes and Exchange Rates" does not work. In fact, it downloads some prices from the US market, where shares with the same name seem to exist.
What extension would anyone recommend?

    I'd recommend you check out Quote Loader.

    Quote Loader will give the best results, but note that you will need to set what exchange to use for each security within the Quote Loader set up. Each source makes assumptions as to the default exchange.

    For example say you own Westpac shares, the ticker is WBC, but a ticker symbol is only unique within an exchange not globally, so Yahoo for example will assume, unless it is told otherwise, that the security with that symbol is for the American company Wabco

    Hi,
    I have downloaded the Quote Loader. The screen shows currencies but the investment shares are nowhere to be found. I have listed them all with their proper codes.
    Cheers,
    Peter

    Hi Peter

    OK lets try to get to the bottom of why you cant see any Securities listed in Quote Loader.

    After you installed Quote Loader did you restart Moneydance?

    Did you read and follow the instructions in the PDF.

    Click TOOLS – SECURITIES – double click on a security that you have shares in – EDIT - then post a screen shot of the EDIT SECURITY window you see. See example screen shot.

    Open Quote Loader and post a screen shot of its window. See example screen shot.

    Lets fix this.

    Hi Peter

    I should have asked what computer operating system and what version/build of Moneydance e.g. 2022.3(4062)

    Thanks

    Honestly, I do not know. I tried all kinds of things, and suddenly it downloaded the prices okay.
