Stock quotes?

What system should I be using to get mutual fund quotes? It seems that regardless of what I select, MD no longer likes it. I get some message that is not very helpful - it doesn't tell me where I am supposed to be looking.

    Given the automatic run comment, it looks like you are using Quote Loader.

    If so, Yahoo changed it's website breaking Yahoo as a downloader.

    You might try changing to FT for now. Derek can help with any inconsistencies.

    Hi monty

    Yahoo has changed something.

    Mike the developer of Quote Loader is working on a fix but it may take a few weeks.

    In the meantime change the Source to FT or if you want historical data for funds FT HD.

    Any Securities that return an error or wrong currency with FT as the source then post just post a screen shot of the Quote Loader windows after you click GET PRICES.

    I will see if I can Help

    Hi monty

    By the way the message you are seeing is a warning that during a Quote Loader auto run one or more securities failed to return a price. By opening Quote Loader these are indicated in the Price Date field.

    Hope this helps
