: 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,
The basic rule is that if you can view the quote with your browser on
any of the supported servers, then FM should be able to retrieve the quote too.
Can you give an example symbol that you're using and the server you're using
it with, that won't update?
