: : : Does anyone use FM to track portfolios that include puts or calls? I do, and I'm having trouble doing automatic online updates of those quotes.
: : : I've tried yahoo, yahoo historical, pcquote, etc. I know that each one of those requires me to define the symbols its own way, and I think I've accommodated that, but nothing seems to work.
: : : I have a portfolio of "open calls". When I run an update, a couple of them get the day's closing price downloaded, but most of them don't get updated at all.
: : : Any suggestions, anyone?
: : : Not a deal breaker; just a curiosity question, really...
: : : Thx
: : : MC and HNY everyone
: : : Tom
: : Hi Tom,
: : Thanks,
: Here's the list of quotes.
: DQILC.X AQUBD.X CDBV.X GUOBW.X TUOLB.X IDXLU.X UPNLB.X EULLW.X
: These are the symbols I've defined for each of them in FM. These are in the format that shows up on yahoo when I input the stock ticker symbol. When I used yahoo a moment ago, I think I got one update for DQILC.X but none for any of the rest. When I switched settings to yahoo historical and asked for quotes from 12/1/01 through tonight, nothing got updated. I've tried other quote services, too, such as pcquote, but not recently. So I can't provide up to date info on how or if that one works. I know that to use it I'd have to switch the format of the symbols, and I know when I was trying pcquote I had the symbols in the right format.
: Like I said, none of this is a deal breaker, but I'm curious if I'm doing something wrong.
: Thx for trying to help.
If it hasn't been traded since Oct 11, then FM won't get a quote past that
