Quote Loader

Several weeks ago Quote Loader started returning an error for two specific Vanguard funds, VMFXX and VTI. The updated price is always $0.00. This is true no matter which service I select (FT, FTHD, etc.). I have the current MD and the latest quote loader build (3058). Prior to this, quote loader was providing the correct price updates. The symbols for these funds have not changed. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

    Does it work for Yahoo or Yahoo HD?

    Do you have an exchange modifier?

    Open the help->console while using quote loader and see if there is something odd about those securities.

    It seems to work for me at least for VTI as a security. I can't find VMFXX as a security at Yahoo so that is problematic. Same versions.

    VMFXX at Yahoo


    But it looks like it is a money market fund hence I expect its price to be constant.

    I see a relatively new provider (Yahoo HD +). I tried that for the two
    securities in question and correct prices were retrieved in both cases.
    Thank you all.

    If you type VMFXX into their quote search it isn't found. But it makes no sense to download a money market fund quote.

    VMFXX is a money market fund. While not mandatory that it remain at
    $1/share, Vanguard has kept it so. I was tired of it not reporting a
    price with Quote Loader, so I marked as "Do Not Load" (and deal with
    better things in life!)

    Thanks wrgreeley I was having the same issue with VTI and this fixed it.

    I also have set all my money market funds to Do Not Load, we can all remain hopeful that they will never be at risk of changing from $1.
