    Possibly because those tickers exist on other exchanges as well. CHN for example exists on NYSE and is The China Fund with a price of USD 18.54.

    The sources have their preferred exchanges for example Yahoo looks to the US exchanges first.

    I would suggest if you are looking for ASX prices you set the Exch mod to Australian Stock Exchange.

    Hi Michael

    Ticker symbols are unique within an exchange, but are not unique across all exchanges. For example, AEV is a valid Ticker Symbol for Aboitiz Equity Ventures traded on the Philippine Stock Exchange the default security on FT. However, AEV is also the Ticker Symbol for Avenira Ltd among other. So, in such cases you must check that the Trade Currency and Price returned matches your expectations and if necessary select an exchange (Exch Mod) that results in the required outcome. All this is explained in the Quote Loader PDF attached to post 202 at

    How to set a Exch Mod is also set out in the PDF
    See Screen shot for your three securities that need a Exch Mod

    EDIT - a typo in screen shot - used AVE instead of AEV for ticker. Corrected in next post.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Michael

    I assume you are now sorted by adding Exch Mod's and are getting the correct prices for you three errant securities.

    Have Fun, Stay Safe.
