You're absolutely right, manually downloading your prices from Yahoo should work without issue. This is likely the most appropriate work around for those experiencing issues getting their rates into Moneydance and I'd like to thank your for raising this point on the forum. As you have pointed out it does involve a fair amount of work but until we have found a new service to supply prices via automatic download, this should hopefully fit the bill.
However, there may be other customer who have further suggestion in this regard so I'll leave this discussion public and open.
Google seems to be more US centric, so probably will not be of much use for those outside the U.S.
I have had problems with prices as far back as 2012 with some prices getting zeroed out. So I have not used the historical pricing option to prevent the problem (some stocks only had daily prices and no history on Yahoo so got overwritten with zeros when it tried to get historical data).
I open Moneydance each day Monday to Friday, at least for a few minutes to allow it to download daily prices, as such I have been building a history of prices by doing this, so now I have at least 5 years worth of historical prices. It is just something that has become part of my daily routine so not a big deal, especially since I also check my email once a day.
