Hello, my name is Martin Fuente, I am Moneydance users for several years. I would like to inform that since a couple of months Alphavantage API is not providing accurate information for Currency ID .CRC (Colon - Costa Rica)

The correct rate is around 0.0016949 and Alphavantage is not updating the rate or is updating using 0.017 causing a problem with all balances.

I stopped the exchange rate automatic update from now.

Thanks for your help.

    I am adding an image after Alpha vantage daily execution.
    As you can see the information is incorrect. CRC exchange rate is (0.0016949) and Alpha Vantage is updating using (0.106816)

    Thanks for your help.

    I'm a fellow user.

    Many of us have stopped using the Quotes and Exchange Rate Extension because of the increasing unreliability of AlphaVantage and instead using the Quote Loader extension, again installed through the Manage Extensions menu.

    Documentation on this extension can be found at:
