Hello,

The security quote downloader has been unable to get quotes for VTHRX, Vanguard Target Retirement 2030 fund. The last successful quote download was December 31, 2018.

Other Vanguard funds do get quotes correctly.

Any ideas? I'm running 2017.10 (1706).

Thanks. I apologize if this is the wrong category. I wasn't sure if it fell under online banking or investments.

    Check you are running the latest build of Quote and Exchange Rate updater v1024.

    There are two methods within Moneydance for obtaining security prices automatically.
    The extension “Quote and exchange rate updater. For exchange rates use the source European Central Bank. If your securities are in the US try IEX Trading first, if that does not support a security try Alpha Vantage. Alpha Vantage also cover some securities outside the US, but is very, very slow.

    Alpha Vantage does return a price but as there is a bug in the Q & ER you may be mislead into thinking the returned price was $0.00

    If the Quote and exchange rate updater does not work well for you try the free third-party Quote Loader

    For 2017 see post 237 at http://help.infinitekind.com/discussions/investments/3771-third-par...

    It has far wider coverage and is fast.

    I have checked and your fund VTHRX is supported. See screen shot.

    Download the PDF attached to these posts and have a read. To get an overview take a look at the YouTube video by using the link in the PDF.

    Let us know how you get on or if you need help just post.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you. I will try QL. I haven't been thrilled with Alphavantage.

    It doesn't return a $0 price, it just says "unable to download price for Vanguard Target Retirement 2030" or words to that effect, in the progress status area at the bottom of the window. I wondered if maybe Vanguard had stopped supplying prices to the quote aggregators, but I looked around and it's still supported elsewhere as you noticed.

    Hopefully I can get QL running and move on. Thanks again.

    Hi kuryan.thomas,

    I see that Derek has already replied while I was composing my post but just to affirm his findings...

    Windows 10 Home (1809)
    Moneydance 2017.10 (1706)
    Quotes & Exchange Rates Updater (v.1024) - Set to Alphavantage

    Windows 10 Home (1809)
    Moneydance 2017.10 (1706)
    Quote Loader 2126 - rhumba 1036 - hleofxquotes 226 - Set to Yahoo

    I was able to successfully download price quotes in each of the above environments for ticker VTHRX.

    Make sure that you are using the latest version of whichever Quote downloader you are using.

    I installed QL following the PDF instructions and it all went very well. I like it quite a bit more than the Alphavantage version.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've occasionally considered quitting Moneydance but the excellent user community keeps me going.

    Thank you, Kevin. I had actually begun installing QL when I read your comment. I kept going and I think I prefer the QL extension, so I'll stick with it.

    The official announcement had been delayed because of QIF import issues found just after release. 2019.1 has just gone live

    Looks like I can upgrade for free. I must have checked the download page right after it went live. I'll install 2019 tomorrow and see how it flies.

    Thanks, all. As I said previously, a wonderful user community.

    I downloaded and installed 2019.1 and updated the QL extension (along with its dependents).

    It seems to work fine, but I wonder if someone (Derek?) could take a look at the screen shot and see if the version numbers along the top are all correct for 2019.

    Edit: Adding a thank you.

    I looked more carefully at the forum post and noticed that the new version numbers are listed there. So I think I am all good. Thanks everyone.
