Hi Fred,

The Real Time server only updates the Close/Low/High fields. It updates
them with the Last/Bid/Ask respectively. Last/Bid/Ask is the data Yahoo
displays when using the Real Time server. Since the Dow Jones index
is an index the Bid/Ask are not applicable/reported, so they aren't going to be

For the ^DJI on the regular daily quote server the volume is being reported
as N/A. This is how Yahoo is showing it now, so this is why FM isn't updating
the volume for ^DJI. You can visit Yahoo with your browser, and see this.
Hopefully they will get it fixed soon. You might try using another quote server
for this index in the mean time.

: hi Mark again
: After further research I found that hi/low/vol doesnt work on ^DJI (DOW INDEX) for realtime. Only the volume is absent on free delayed quote. Hi/low works on DIA (the stock)but no Open or Volume. All is provided on the free delayed quote for DIA. These inconsistencies may all be yahoo but the missing realtime volume on DIA may be a FM bug.
: Thanks again, FC
: : hi Mark:

: : The yahoo realtime quote doesnt have high,low or volume data. The delayed yahoo has hi/low but no volume. Shouldnt the realtime come with at least the daily hi and low since it works for the free delayed quote server? The hi and low are helpfull on the TA candle screen if your attempting to time a trade. Also, why cant we get a intraday volume number from yahoo. This would keep me from having to switch back and forth to yahoo's website for hi/low/volume information. I belive this is important to FM users who are looking to time a trade during the market day.

: : Thanks, FC
