[Updated] Yahoo Finance data feed not updating properly

Posted on Friday, Nov. 21st 2014

As some may already have noticed, the Yahoo Finance data quote feed is not updating properly since the close of trade on Wednesday November 19th. For many users the quotes are stuck, with the last trade from the close on Wednesday. Other users, however, are not experiencing any problems.

This leads us to believe that it is a regional issue. Users from some parts of the world, Western North America especially, are having problems. On the other hand, users from Europe and other parts of the world are not experiencing any problems.

Unfortunately, as much as we would like to fix it, there’s not much we can do at this point. The issue is with Yahoo Finance and their data feed that StockMarketEye uses. Typically Yahoo fixes these types of issues quickly, so I’m hopeful that they will get it resolved soon.

We will update this post when we know more. Leave a comment for us below letting us know if you are or are not affected by it and where you’re located.

[Update #1] Please add your vote to this “suggestion” for fixing the issue at Yahoo (the link goes directly to the Help section of the Yahoo Finance website). The more votes, the more attention it will get from them:

[Update #2 (2pm EST, November 21, 2014)] We’ve had a number of users tell us that it is working for them again. Seems all is back to normal. Thanks for your patience.

  • I appreciate your post. Even my broker (a big name) was showing incorrect values on my online account. My account was showing a value of $20 million. I wish!

  • I am affected since Wednesday. South Florida location. Time to engage a back-up data feed provider? Thx /eric/
