Still using Microsoft Money but tired of manually entering quote/price information? I have a solution for you!
Hi, I’m Dan and I'm a former Microsoft employee who worked on the Microsoft Money product and MSN Money website for almost a decade (1999 – 2009). I was the software developer who built the Portfolio Manager for both products, worked on the quote services that powered them, and in 2009 built the Money-to-Quicken Converter for Intuit.
Since Microsoft pulled the plug on the quote services in the summer of 2013, I 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 I have built such a tool!
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, PE, market cap and volume. It also handles pounds to pence price conversions for you 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!
You can Try or Buy. You'll simply need to register as a customer, which only requires a name and email address.
Make a one-time payment of $9.99 USD using a credit card. Then you can download MSMoneyQuotes.exe and can place it on whatever computers you need. If that’s multiple computers, then that’s OK. If I make future updates, bug fixes, enhancements, I’ll notify you and you’ll be free to get the updated program without paying again. MSMoneyQuotes.exe will work as long as it can get quotes from MSN Money. There is no limit on the number of times it can be run.
Unsure if this will work for you, or how it all works. Give it a try for free. The Trial is full-featured and can be run 60 times. You can then Buy later if you like.
Note: The trial is named MSMoneyQuotesTrial.exe instead of MSMoneyQuotes.exe.
