Bug : Portfolio entries on MyYahoo page showing "USD"
Bug: Portfolio entries on MyYahoo page showing "USD" before prices currently. Since they are USD, it's unnecessary.
Gene Goldenfeld commented
I reported that the "Hide USD" button doesn't respond on my iPad Mini in any browser. After one successful try on my Win10 desktop, the USD came back and now the Hide doesn't work there either. When it does respond, it also gives a page that says "Controller view option (ctrl) must be defined."

Drop the USD description now appearing aside the stock prices in My Portfolio. It causes the figure not to be treated as numbers when exported to other applications such as Excel.

On both desktop and iPad, the "Hide USD" is overlays right side of the "Last Update" line text. The button responds on my desktop, but does not respond on my iPad Mini 2 (Safari, FF, Edge) or sometimes it returns a page that says “Controller view option (ctrl) must be defined.”
But why is the USD showing by default now anyway for US users?? It's extraneous.

Why has USD been added in front of the stock prices?
This makes no sense. Every entry stock, mutual fund and index has USD in the price. It should never have been added and ought to be an easy fix to return it to where it was prior to Jan 12.

Yahoo developers: please work to improve your processes to avoid introducing bugs into the production environment time and time again. No way was this USD issue intended, a proper UX design never would have said it was the right thing to do. If you need a good Product Owner to take over the myYahoo application, please let me know and I'll happily submit my resume.

Adding the ISO currency symbol in front of every stock price makes them very difficult to read. Rather than show the currency for every stock or mutual fund price, consider USD to be the default and only show other currency symbols where relevant. Alternatively, use the dollar sign ($) rather than "USD". At a minimum, insert a space between the currency symbol and the price itself. C'mon UI experts!

Starting yesterday, My Yahoo Finance shows the Price with prefix currency label "USD". Example: ^DJI USD31,210.14
The currency label on an index is meaningless. The label on all my stocks list is distracting.
Please remove the currency symbol label from the Price.

Get rid of USD on every item in portfolio. It is unnecessary and distracting.
Yeah, getting this too. It's so @#$% annoying. And if you click the "Hide USD" my portfolio values disappear.

MY Portfolio has USD next to quotes. No need to have it. Can hide it but reload page and it comes back Pain in the butt

Almost nothing is working - no charts, can't look up symbols, no totals on portfolios, only 2 news releases on stocks instead of a full page. FIX IT! It's next to useless as is.
