I'm using MD 2017.7.1 (1671), and the problem of updating security prices has reoccured.

Using AlphaAdvantage. which worked okay for a time (sometimes it took a couple of attempts), but now it updates security prices for the first 7-10 (random) securities and then errors out on the rest.

Anyone else experiencing this?

    I think that v1018 is just the one with the long delay between blocks of N securities to keep AV happy. It appears that Sean just tweaked the timing for 5 securities instead of 6 and bumped the version to show it wasn't the same as the beta.
    "updated Alphavantage connection in Quotes and Rates extension to have a long delay (15 seconds) after every 5 connections instead of 6." AV is really a pain with their throttling.
