Thanks for your quick response. After trying without success trying to find an error log or where I could test the source, Alphavantage, for whether it had access to prices for my Vanguard fund, I went bank and checked one more time and the Vanguard stock had updated along with its history. This was after several days of checking before I raised the question.
I still have a few stocks that haven’t updated since early November, but maybe some things take time.
Short answer- The immediate problem solved itself but I don’t know why.
Thanks, I have downloaded the PDF you recommend and will look into making a change. I assume that you can see the response I gave dwg that my immediate problem with the Vanguard fund mysteriously solved itself.
I have a similar issue. I tested it this morning (12/27/18). It appears the Alphavantage extension updates some securities and not others. I isolated one security, SWPPX (Schwab 500 Index), and specifically asked to update for today (12/27). The routine seems to work fine (it takes an awful long of time to download one value though). Once complete, it says one quote obtained, but that quote remains at Monday's value ($35.96). Neither history nor current price for the fund were updated with yesterday's price ($37.74). I can't figure out what is going on. Especially since other securities are being updated. Individual stocks work well. Vanguard and Fidelity funds are not updated consistently. I have been a user for several years. Please advise.
With any of the Quote sources neither The Infinite Kind (Moneydance) nor the developers of the extensions control what prices the sources provide nor indeed if and when they update such price. Some sources do a better job than others.
Moneydance's Quotes and Exchange Rates Extension provide the following sources:
IEX Trading (US stocks only at this time)
ECB (Exchange rates)
The Quote Loader Extension provides the following sources:
Users comments and my own experience indicates that a least for funds and non US securities the two sources provided by the third-party Quote Loader provide a more reliable and often a more up to date service than Alpha Vantage.
