    With the limited information you have provided I would assume you are using Yahoo as the quote source and they have made changes which broke downloads. If you are using Quote Loader then update the extension, if using the Quotes and Exchange Rate Extension is has not as yet been updated.

    Hi David

    Yahoo has changed something.

    Quote Loader extension has been fixed but Quote and Exchange Rate extension is still broken.

    Try the extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION

    When Quote Loader uses Yahoo HD as the source Yahoo has imposed restrictions in that if you try to retrieve prices for more than around 70 securities, they block access and prices are only retried up to that number. If you are under the limit on your first run, running Quote Loader again dependant on your number of securities can invoke the block. The block remains in effect for some time before they remove it.

    For information on the features of Quote Loader and how to use it see post 103 at https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/discussions/investments/7595-quo...

    Download the PDF’s attached to post 103 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.

    The Quick Start Video is intended to give a quick overview so the user can see if Quite loader looks like it could work for them. The Short Video expands the user’s knowledge giving more detail. The Full Video goes even further but may be to wordy for some.

    The PDF reinforces what’s leaned in the videos, provides step by step instructions, a must read and provide answers on how to handle less obvious issues some users may come across.

    Hope this helps.
