: Greetings All,

: I just discovered and downloaded Fund Manager a few
: hours ago so please forgive me if these are dumb questions :)

: I've gotten some historical data for a couple of
: Australian stocks from Yahoo (Adjusted Historical)
: but there appears to be errors ie gaps in the data
: in both cases, which show up in the graphs as straight lines
: between prices sometimes many days long.
: Is this a known yahoo thing, or a temporary server glitch
: or something ???

: If so does anyone know of a free historical data server
: for Oz stocks that delivers a format acceptable to FM ?

: Just one more question I had to consider, is the unregistered
: version of FM errr.. reduced in functionality in some way ?

: Thanks in advance
: Col

Hi Col,
Usually, if Yahoo has the prices they are continuous. Have you
tried doing a retrieve just for the dates you're missing? You can
also visit Yahoo with your browser and look up the symbol in question,
and then click on the link to "historical prices", and you can see
if they're there when looking with your browser. If you can see them
with your browser, FM should also be able retrieve them.

Take a look at our "Tips & Tricks" page for some links on historical
ASX quotes.

FM is fully functional during the evaluation period.
