Is Quote Loader the only way to download stock prices?

I've been using Quote Loader v3204 which I know is broken at the moment when trying to access Yahoo quotes.

I have tried using FT for Quote Loader, however, several of my Canadian ETF's (VGRO, XDIV, XEQT) I can't seem to locate in FT as well as some others such as Dollarama DOL load the incorrect info.

Is downloading a CSV list for each stock and then importing it is the only solution?

How is software such as Quicken able to access stock prices (or are their systems not working either).

Thank you

    Hi davestirling1

    Of your securities the only one I can find is Dollarama Inc. see screen shot. Note the selected Exch Mod

    Mike the Developer of Quote Loader is aware and working on a fix but it may take some a few weeks.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you - I must have misread the instructions because I had put the Alt Ticker of DOL:TOR and it was coming up with something strange. Appreciate fixing that one for me.
