Yahoo server not working?

Questions about updating prices or transactions in Fund Manager

Postby Mark » Wed May 24, 2023 9:08 am

Hello,

We've just released quote module 581 to address this problem with Yahoo. You can download it with "Help / FM on the Web / Check for Updates..." from within FM 2022 or 2020. This fixes Yahoo for all countries, except GDPR countries.

Yahoo is not currently working when accessing from within a GDPR country, i.e. Europe. We are still investigating, but a solution may take a significant amount of time. Some workarounds for now include:

1) Use a different quote server. See the list of quote servers. Both Yahoo (Historical) and Yahoo (Alternate) continue to work. Yahoo (Historical) only offers end of day prices, but Yahoo (Alternate) offers intraday pricing, although it is quite slow.

2) Use Fund Manager with a VPN and from a connection outside a GDPR country, like the United States for example. Accessing Yahoo from a VPN like this will enable you to then retrieve prices, even once you're not using the VPN, as you've obtained the necessary cookies.
Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

I've installed QM 581 but it has NOT cured the problem in the UK!

FM PRO 2022.17.6.100
QM 581

Hi Matt,

581 is working right now from Germany, without VPN, after following Mark's instructions: retrieving all prices once whilst using an IP address associated with the USA.

Hi Klaus,

Yahoo isn't working from GDPR countries currently. Please read this for some options.

Hi HMI,

Thanks for the confirmation on the VPN solution.
Thanks,
Mark

Hello,

The quote module has been updated. Version 582 is available by selecting "Help / Fund Manager on the Web / Check for Updates..." from within Fund Manager 2022 or 2020. This update includes fixes for the Yahoo servers in GDPR countries, so the regular Yahoo servers now work from all countries.
Thanks,
Mark
