Hi SteveK,

Are you trying to retrieve Liberty Kenya Holdings PLC from the Nairobi Stock Exchange? If so, on WSJ you would need to record the symbol as:

KE/XNAI/LBTY

And record the investment type as "Stock". Please see the instructions for retrieving from the WSJ here.
Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Now that WSJ is out again, might you know an alternative server for this ?

Hi Steven,

Can you find this quote on any of our other quote servers using your web browser? I'd first start by searching on Yahoo, then Stooq, and maybe FondsCheck.
Thanks,

Hi Mark,

No, not on any of these 3. However, i can find it on these servers:

https://www.reuters.com/markets/companies/LBTY.NR/
https://www.wsj.com/market-data/quotes/ke/xnai/LBTY
https://africanfinancials.com/company/ke-lbty/
https://markets.ft.com/data/equities/te ... s=LBTY:NAI
https://in.marketscreener.com/quote/sto ... -12820242/


Is it possible to use any of these ?

Hi Steven,

None of those are currently supported quote servers. We used to support WSJ and Reuters, but those aren't options anymore. We do have support for Financial Times, but only for the funds. Adding a new server for the equities access on FT is something we can try and do. I can't say for sure, or when, but we will investigate.
Thanks,
Mark

Hi Steven,

To help with the loss of WSJ and Reuters we've added support for a new quote server:

Financial Times - Equities

which will allow you to retrieve the quote in question using the symbol LBTY:NAI and this new server. You can download the update from within FM 2024 using "Help / Fund Manager on the Web / Check for Updates..." to get quote module 596 or later.
Thanks,
Mark
