: : : : : Can you pls indicate if you foresee support for any of the italian stock quote
: : : : : servers. There are several, some (or possibly all) of which require
: : : : : registration. Here is a short list:
: : : : : http://www.voltrade.it/it/index.asp
: : : : : http://www.borse.it/
: : : : : http://www.ilsole24ore.com/
: : : : : http://www.fineco.it/
: : : : : Thank you for your help.

: : : : Hi Sal,
: : : : In FM 5.0 we've added support for a new server: "Yahoo - Italy".
: : : : The URL for this server is:
: : : : http://it.finance.yahoo.com/
: : : : For a list of all our new servers and links to them, see:
: : : : http://www.fundmanagersoftware.com/intrtv.html
: : : : The new servers are only available in a 5.x version.
: : : : If you're interested in trying out 5.0 while it is in beta visit:

: : : Hi Mark,
: : : I followed your suggestion and downloaded F.M. 5.0, which appears to work fine.
: : : However when I try to update my portfolio using the Yahoo italian site, some of
: : : the stocks are duly updated, while others refuse to do so. Yet, if I search for
: : : them in the Yahoo site, using of course the same symbols I use for FM, the
: : : quotes are indeed there.
: : : Do you have an explanation?
: : : Thanks.
: : : Sal Iannazzo
: : Hi Sal,
: : Are the ones that aren't updating mutual funds? Please make sure you
: : have version 301 of the retrieve module. Use 'Help/FM on the Web/Check for
: : Updates...'. If the problem is still there with this new version of the
: : retrieve module please let me know an example ticker symbol that isn't
: : working in FM that is available on the site.
: : Thanks,
: : Mark

: Hi Mark,
: thank you for your prompt answer.
: 1. No, they are not mutual funds; they are stocks.
: 2. Yes, I do have the 301 retrieve module
: 3. Some of the stocks that are not updating: L'Espresso (symbol ES.MI);
: Fiat Risparmio (FR.MI); Generali (G.MI); Pirelli (P.MI).
: And some that are updating: Alleanza (AL.MI); Bipop Carire (BIP.MI);
: Enel (ENEL.MI); Eni (ENI.MI).
: Thank you.

The non-updating symbols do not appear to be valid symbols on Yahoo-IT.
For example, go to:
All of these symbols show up as not available, using a browser. I looked up
the symbol for L'Espresso on their site:
and I believe the correct symbol is ESPI.MI
Using this symbol the price updated correctly in FM, and it appears correctly
in the browser too.
I would suggest re-checking the symbols you are using, and make sure they
are available on Yahoo-IT using your browser.
