: There have been various exchanges on this message board over recent weeks about the status of the ASX server.
: I now have version 232 of INTENG4X.DLL, and still cannot download anything from the ASX server, not even end-of-day prices only, let alone last price plus vol, hi, low as in the past.
: I should mention that I don't often try the server during trading hours -- mostly a few hours after close of trading. So I'm not absolutely sure about how the server functions currently DURING trading.
: As previously mentioned, the Yahoo Australia & NZ server seems to work fine with 'plain vanilla' stocks -- with a 3-character ASX ticker code -- but only after adding the ".AX" suffix, e.g via Edit/Investment Properties.
: The Yahoo Australia & NZ server extends to some of the other common types of securities based on the plain vanilla ones.
: The trouble is, it doesn't cover some of the other common types, including the so-called income securities (perpetual, i.e. no maturity date, securities paying a fixed margin over the Treasury Bill rate).
: It also doesn't seem to cover ASX indexes, at least by their ASX ticker codes (e.g. The well known 'All Ordinaries', XAO).
: In short, it is only a partial substitute for the ASX server.
: As someone pointed out on this board, there is a free ftp site ftp://www.stockwatch.com.au/pub/sez/ providing download data covering everything but indexes, but only after midnight.
: In short, a return to full functionality (maybe without indexes) for the ASX server via INTENG4X.DLL would be very greatly appreciated!!!!
: All the alternatives I am aware of have some significant deficiency.
