This release has a few minor updates and fixes which improve the stability and compatibility of StockMarketEye.

Below is the full list of changes in StockMarketEye 4.2.8.

What’s New In StockMarketEye 4.2.8

StockMarketEye 4.2.7 Released

Monday, Apr. 16th 2018

We are proud to announce the release of StockMarketEye 4.2.7 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

This version of StockMarketEye focuses on performance improvements and UK users who have found issues with Yahoo Finance ticker symbols.

A number of users have had performance issues with our last release, StockMarketEye v4.2.6. We’ve worked with many of them to narrow down the issue and find a solution. StockMarketEye 4.2.7 includes all of the performance improvements we’ve found and should run smoothly.

UK users have had problems converting some of their ticker symbols from Google Finance to Yahoo Finance ticker symbols due to data quality issues with the Yahoo Finance ticker symbols. To help those UK users who have ticker symbols that are not covered well by Yahoo Finance (this includes smaller securities and some funds), StockMarketEye 4.2.7 allows you to continue using Google Finance ticker symbols for UK based securities (i.e. tickers that begin with “LON:” and “MUTF_UK:”). Pricing (i.e. the “Last” column) will be end-of-day (EOD) closing price for these ticker symbols. This allows holdings to be priced correctly (although not live) and up-to-date market values to be calculated. StockMarketEye will use the currently still available EOD historical data from Google Finance for these symbols. As long as the historical data for these symbols is still available from Google Finance, this will be a viable option for “LON:” and “MUTF_UK:” ticker symbols. This also means that the chart data for these securities will come from Google Finance, which is a significant improvement for these smaller UK securities as the Yahoo Finance data can be quite poor.

Note that Google Finance ticker symbols will not appear in the symbol search results. But you can still add them – just ignore the warning that says the ticker symbol is unknown.

Below is the full list of changes in StockMarketEye 4.2.7.

What’s New In StockMarketEye 4.2.7

  • Performance optimizations to fix freezing and sluggishness.
  • All former Google Finance tickers from “LON:” and “MUTF_UK:” should use historical quotes.
  • Upgrade internals on all platforms for stable 3rd party libraries.
  • Right align all date columns.

This is a free update for anyone already using StockMarketEye 4. If you are using StockMarketEye 4, we highly recommend that you update to the new version.

StockMarketEye 4.2.6 Released

Friday, Mar. 30th 2018

We are proud to announce the release of StockMarketEye 4.2.6 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

This release concentrates on improving the user experience in the aftermath of the Google Finance disruption. We’ve also fixed some bugs and added minor performance improvements.

As of StockMarketEye 4.2.6, we no longer support Google Finance as a data provider. The vast majority of securities covered by Google Finance are also covered by Yahoo Finance and we therefor recommend that you convert your Google Finance ticker symbols over to Yahoo Finance ticker symbols.

There are, however, cases where Yahoo Finance does not cover a particular market or set of securities, for example Canadian mutual funds. In these cases, StockMarketEye will continue to try to get end-of-day (EOD) quotes from Google Finance. Retrieval of EOD quotes for these markets/securities will work as long as the last Google Finance access point is still open.

Below is the full list of changes in StockMarketEye 4.2.6.

What’s New In StockMarketEye 4.2.6

  • Removed GoogleFinance as a data provider except for markets that are not covered by Yahoo Finance – this includes, notably, Canadian and other non-US mutual funds. If you have Google Finance ticker symbols for these types of securities, you do not need to change them. This will work as long as the old Google Finance access point for these securities remains open.
  • Improved the charts and historical data retrieval for some UK, DE and CH securities which had inconsistent EOD data from Yahoo Finance.
  • Fix for dividends/yield values for UK stocks.
  • Fix for ROE and ROA being off by factor of 100.
  • Aligned calculation of TR for multi-lot holdings and partial sales with the IncomeTotal calculation.
  • Fix issue with Capital One brokerage import.
  • Improved the Summary report to use manually edited Last values if the end date of the report is today.
  • Fixed case where imported historical quotes (from CSV) were not used in the Prices view for non-quoted items until after a restart.
  • Performance improvement for 52W and AllTime fundamental columns.
  • Show the Category name in the Name column for Watchlist categories.
  • Updated internal libraries on Linux to help startup issue on newer debian systems.

This is a free update for anyone already using StockMarketEye 4. If you are using StockMarketEye 4, we highly recommend that you update to the new version.

Quotes No Longer Available For Google Finance Ticker Symbols

Tuesday, Mar. 20th 2018

StockMarketEye (v4.2.5) is no longer able to retrieve current quote data for Google Finance ticker symbols.

We suggest that you switch over your Google Finance ticker symbols to Yahoo Finance ticker symbols. Have a look at this page for how you can do that:

How to Change Ticker Symbols

If you have Google Finance ticker symbols which are not available on Yahoo Finance, you can still maintain them as manually updated symbols. Have a look at this page for how you can update their prices manually:

How to Override the Last Price

Common Ticker Symbol Conversions

Google Old Yahoo New
.DJI ^DJI
.INX ^GSPC
.IXIC ^IXIC
NASDAQ:AAPL APPL
TSE:RY RY.TO
LON:LLOY LLOY.L

What Happened?

During the later part of 2017, Google updated and redesigned their financial news website. The old version of their financial news site, from which StockMarketEye took the quotes, was still available, however.

Over the last few days, Google has taken down the old financial news website. This has made it impossible for StockMarketEye to retrieve current quotes for Google Finance ticker symbols.

Is Any Data Available From Google Finance Now?

It is still possible to get end-of-day (EOD) and intra-day historical data for Google Finance ticker symbols. StockMarketEye uses this historical data to display the charts. The data comes from a different data source at Google, which is currently still available.

However, I suspect that Google will, at some unannounced date in the future, also remove this data source. But at the time of this blog post, it was still working.

What Is StockMarketEye Going To Do?

We’re still deciding…

Using the new Google Finance website to get data is unfortunately not possible. It doesn’t offer much in the way of data that is useful within StockMarketEye. There are also significant technical challenges to getting data out of the new site due to their “unique” redesign.

That means that fundamental data is definitively gone for Google Finance ticker symbols. Historical dividend and split data for Google Finance tickers is also no longer available.

However, it is possible that we could use the intra-day historical data to compute current-day quote data for Google Finance ticker symbols. This would be, essentially, just the open, high, low, last price, volume and previous close values.

Technically, this solution should work. Our concern is with its durability. The Google Finance historical data source currently still works, but as Google has removed most other ways of getting financial data, we don’t know how long this solution will last – it is almost certain that it too will stop working at some point in the future.

Paid Quotes?

Would you be willing to pay for quotes?

From our initial investigations at the end of last year, paid quotes are not cheap, do not cover a broad range of markets, and often limit the number of quotes you can receive per day.

If you would be willing to pay for quotes, let us know (either in the comments or at our support email) which markets/countries you trade in and what your think they should cost. We don’t have control over the pricing, but it will help us determine if we should pursue the paid pricing option.

[Update]

We have released StockMarketEye 4.2.6 which maintains support for Google Finance ticker symbols from markets and security types that are not available on Yahoo Finance. Specifically, the new version will retrieve EOD (end-of-day) quotes for Canadian and other non-US mutual funds from Google Finance until such time as Google closes off that last entry point to the data.
