We are proud to announce the release of StockMarketEye 4.1.3 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
The focus of this release is to restore current quote downloads for Google Finance ticker symbols.
As explained in our previous blog post, Google Finance has turned off their access point that StockMarketEye used to download current stock quotes. This has affected many of you.
After studying the available options, we’ve decided on a solution that will allow continued use of all existing Google Finance ticker symbols. One downside of the new solution, however, is that it takes longer to load those quotes. How much longer depends on the number of Google Finance ticker symbols you have in your Watchlists and Portfolios. The more you have, the longer it takes.
Unfortunately, we haven’t had time to updated the iOS or Android apps yet. We are aware that they are also affected by this issue. We plan on updating them as soon as we can, but our focus up till now has been on the main desktop version.
Some users have pointed out that the charts for many (but not all) Google Finance ticker symbols do not have quotes for September 6 & 7, 2017 (Wednesday and Thursday of this week). Unfortunately this is an issue with Google Finance’s data. The historical quotes for those 2 days are missing from the historical data on Google Finance. You can also see this problem on Google Finance by viewing the 3-month stock chart there. There is no data in the chart for those days. Typically this type of issue will be fixed by Google (or Google’s data provider), in which case, it will update in StockMarketEye too. If it is updated on the Google Finance site, but not in StockMarketEye, you can force StockMarketEye to reload the chart data.
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.
Haven’t yet upgraded to StockMarketEye 4? What better time than now!
[…] been able to integrate one of the solutions mentioned on Friday and have released a new version of StockMarketEye (v4.1.3). All Google Finance ticker symbols should work again. However, it will take longer now to download […]
Thanks for the prompt update to address this issue; SME support and attention to customers has always been stellar.
I feel sure you are aware but just in case you are not, unfortunately it seems that periodically the prices revert back to the google 08/09/17 00:00 prices. After a time the price feed then returns but this latest time some of the data, eg. the yield and p/e are quoted as zero. Many thanks.
Honestly, you deliver first class service! Thanks a lot!
Google, Yahoo, msn etc Finance ticker symbols lack vast majority of global mutual funds. Please attach serious ticker symbols, such as Bloomberg, Morningstar and via ISIN of each fund.
Please look into offering a paid live quotes service. Maybe able to chose which exchanges you want live feeds and which on delays. I would definitely be keen to pay for accurate live quotes directly from the exchanges.

I’m getting this error with regularity. Additionally charts aren’t loading now.
We are looking into these issues and hope to get a better understanding of what’s going on.
I’m having similar issues with prices reverting and showing no charts. Let me know if you need a wireshark trace or other info.

Thanks. Can you give v4.1.4 a try? It should work better.
