Stock prices are not downloaded

When keeping track of investments in Moneyspire, the most important thing is to set your portfolio to have the stock prices downloaded. It happens sometimes, though, that you have entered the stock, but its price is not being updated when you hit the Download.

If this happens, it means that the stock symbol has not been assigned correctly. To know the proper symbol, consult Yahoo Finance, as Moneyspire is downloading the latest stock prices and currency exchanges from it.

Let's see on an example:

at LSE the symbol for the CITY NATURAL RESOURCES HIGH YIELD TRUST PLC ORD 25P is CYN, but at Yahoo Finance it's represented by CYN.L, so when you add CYN, the prices would not be downloaded, because Yahoo Finance doesn't have any such symbol.
