I have your new update but the stock quotes still do not download. I am getting tired of doing them manually. You better fix this or I will stop using your software!!!

    Hi Gary,

    Take a look at this post regarding a third-party quotes loader extension:

    There's an attached PDF there that explains how to install and use the quotes loader extension. It has links to the files needed and a link to a video showing the quotes loader in action.

    The instructions look a little daunting but they're quite easy to follow. The quotes loader works fast and reliably.

    The latest version of the Q & ER extension should work reasonable well for U.S. stocks with the addition of IEX as a source and in general for exchange rates with ECB. Alpha Vantage should work OK, but slowly for Stock prices on other Markets, the speed is due to Alpha Vantage not Moneydance. Funds are something that neither source handles well.

    The third party solution that Kevin has pointed you towards works pretty well and provides a viable alternative, but it uses sources that the company behind Moneydance could not use hence part of the reason it was created by independent users.
