The Price Internet Retrieve feature in Fund Manager is one of the most popular and time-saving features. This feature allows you to quickly and easily update the prices for all your investments. This feature is available as the menu command Edit / Internet Retrieve / Prices..., or from the toolbar with the button.
In addition to retrieving prices, Fund Manager can retrieve transactions directly from your broker or mutual fund company. For more on this, see Retrieving Transactions.
Fund Manager can retrieve prices from a wide variety of quote servers. Select the default server with Edit / Internet Retrieve / Settings.... If you track investments from multiple exchanges, you can assign unique quote servers to different investments under Investment Properties... / Internet Retrieve. Portfolios memorize your global quote server preference. Also, you can use the /I and /Q command line arguments to perform unattended price updates. See the "User Interface / Commands / Command Line Arguments" topic in the documentation.
The following quote servers are supported:
Fund Manager uses the recorded ticker symbol to request price quotes from each of these servers. If you are uncertain of the ticker symbol for a particular investment you can go to each of these sites (by clicking on the links above) and do a ticker lookup. For some of the unique investments, such as indexes, each server may utilize its own symbol, so you may need to look up the symbol for the particular server you choose to use for retrieving prices.
The list of supported servers can change over time. Fund Manager has the ability to automatically update the list of supported servers and the retrieve functionality. By choosing Edit / Internet Retrieve / Check for Updates... from the menu within Fund Manager the latest server status can be obtained. This will also cause Fund Manager to check for any updates to the internet retrieve functionality. If an update is available you will be given the opportunity to automatically download the update. The current Quote Module version number in use is available under Help / About... from within Fund Manager.
In addition to 'retrieving' prices, you can also import prices. This may be necessary when the quotes you're looking for are not available on any of our supported quote servers listed above. Importing is a two step process where you first obtain the pricing data in some file, and then import from this file using one of the "File / Import / Prices" menu commands. Some specific tips relating to importing prices can be found on our Helpful Tips page.
Specific instructions and details for using each of the following servers are provided.
This site updates the closing price using the quote date specified by the server.
This site updates the close, high, low, open, and volume during market hours. After hours, only the closing price is updated. The data is updated using the default date. (This server does not provide volume/high/low/open once the market is closed. You may prefer to use the Yahoo - Australia & New Zealand quote server instead.)
This server provides daily close, high, low, open, and volume for a wide variety of stocks, funds, and indices from all over the world for the date specified by the server.
This server specifies the quote time/date for the US ET time zone. If you are in a significantly different time zone you may want the quote updated for an offset time/date in some cases. For example, if you are in Australia, and are 15 hours ahead of US ET retrieving AU quotes in the morning of day X, the prices may be quoted for day X-1 in US ET. To have these AU quotes updated correctly for day X you can either have Fund Manager use the default date, or specify an hour offset to apply from the specified US ET time/date. Either of these options can be accomplished by setting a registry value.
See the instructions for forcing Fund Manager to use the default date (set force_def_date to 1).
Alternatively, to specify an hour offset, create a string value named bloomberg_hour_offset under the existing Internet Retr key and set this value to the number of hours you wish to offset the quote time/date. The offset can be either positive or negative. For example, if you want the quotes updated for a time/date that is 15 hours ahead of the specified US ET time/date, set this registry value to 15. See the default date instructions for how to find this key and create registry values.
If you force Fund Manager to use the default date, the hour offset setting is ignored.
