Crypto prices with older FM version

Questions about updating prices or transactions in Fund Manager

Postby flyboy320 » Sat Jul 17, 2021 6:55 am

I am currently using FM version 2016 and it does not support lookup using CoinGecko. Is there
another server that I can use to look up BTC and ETH (no other coins)? I tried Yahoo and although on finance.yahoo.com I can lookup BTC and ETH prices, I cannot find the symbol for FM to be able to use Yahoo and find those quotes.

Hi,

For Bitcoin:
- Yahoo / Yahoo Historical servers, use symbol BTC-USD
https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/BTC-USD ... c=fin-srch

- Wall Street Journal / WSJ Historical, use symbol fx/BTCUSD
https://www.wsj.com/market-data/quotes/fx/BTCUSD


For Ethereum:
- Yahoo / Yahoo Historical, use symbol ETH-USD
https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/ETH-USD ... c=fin-srch

I had tried that earlier (using Yahoo) but when I try to retrieve the prices FM says it’s unable to update.

I've tested, it works with version 2020. The quote servers for version 2016 are not updated anymore since the release of version 2020 (only the quote modules of the two last versions are updated). So probably there is something that has been updated on Yahoo since 2 years that has been fixed only for the newer versions.

Ok, thanks for checking for me. I have a feeling your right my version is to old, although it works for all my stock quotes, guess just not for cryptos.
