    Quote Loader stopped working for me for getting quotes from Yahoo as of 12/16/22.I heard it is a Screen Scraper so apparently Yahoo changed the UI 8-(

    If you change your source to FT that works. At least it did for all but one of my stock quotes.

    Yahoo has change their web pages, hence why Quote Loader is not working with Yahoo.

    The developer has been working on the problem and we have gone through a number of beta test cycles to date.

    In the interim using FT is the solution, although you may need to change the Exch Mod setting in some cases or at times even the ticker for the stock.

    Which combination works for Source FT? I have tried AMECON, NYSE, and ASE for the Exch Mod.

    It depends on what market the particular stock is traded on. funds can be more problematic. It is not a case of use FT and just select X for the exchange mod.

    I'd suggest post the ones you have problems with and we can see if we can work it out.

    Leave Exchange mod blank and try changing the ticker to VTI:PCQ:USD and see if that gives what you need.

    I found most tikers work with no exch mod specified, but here are a few that must use different ones:
    DIS: ASE

    I haven't figured out how to get price info for BTC and ETH.

    It is usually not possible for us to work out what a stock is from the ticker alone. Tickers are not unique across exchanges, they are unique within an exchange, so we generally need more information to help to identify it. The data we look for is:

    - Ticker
    - Full security name
    - Last price
    - Currency you work in
