Restore Microsoft Money Online Quotes with MSMoneyQuotes! (Gaier software solution)
Since Microsoft pulled the plug on the quote services in the summer of 2013, it is often get asked if it's possible to build something that would restore Money's ability to get quote information automatically. It turns out it is possible, and a tool has been built to do this.
The tool is a separate executable called MSMoneyQuotes.exe that can automatically update quotes with a single click of a button! MSMoneyQuotes can open your Money file (including password protected ones), obtain the list of securities in your portfolio, make calls to MSN Money's new quote services to fetch data for these securities, and update your Money file. It follows nearly the same logic as the original Money code in terms of updating this information, and includes data such as last, change, open, high, low, 52 week high, 52 week low, ask, beta, bid, market cap, shares outstanding, PE, volume, and yield. It also handles pounds to pence price conversions for UK users. It can be run throughout the day, knows when to add vs. update an existing price entry, and can be run while you have Money open or closed.
MSMoneyQuotes.exe restores the same automatic online quote functionality originally available in Money!
- Supports both the Deluxe and the Home & Business versions of Microsoft Money 2005, 2006, 2007, Plus (aka 2008) and Sunset
- Supports updating quotes for all securities that are supported by the MSN Money website
