Accounts in currencies other than the main currency are not showing the correct exchange rates. When I try to do a manual update in the "Quotes and Exchange Rates Settings" the error shown is: "Error while downloading Currency Exchange Rates:". A quick search of the web indicated that yahoo has discontinued this URL.

Using the latest build:
2017.7.1 (1671)

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    Moneydances Quotes and Exchange Rate extension no longer users Yahoo as a source for quotes or exchange rates.
    Moneydance now uses Alpha Vantage. Under EXTENSION – MANAGE EXTENSIONS ensure you install/update the Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater to build v1018. Then open this extension select the source as Alpha Vantage and use the link to obtain a free key from Alpha Vantage. Enter the key and run the extension.

    Hope this helps
