  1. Reinstate the stock quote API using unique keys

    As you can imagine by the overwhelming response to is depreciation, the stock quote download API was very popular.

    Yahoo admin has stated the reason for shutting down the API as:
    "we and our data providing partners have found that commercial entities are accessing this data at high rates and scale".

    Yahoo further goes on to state:
    "We have made multiple unsuccessful attempts to prevent misuse of this service in order to avoid shutting it down completely. However we were unable to stop the misuse."

    In order to combat such things your competitors use a unique API key, whereby each…

  2. Google Finance Portfolio import / import ofx format

    Google Finance is discontinuing their portfolio tracking features as of November 2017. Yahoo Finance has a unique opportunity to gain all these Google Finance users if the Yahoo Finance team is able to add the ability to import Google Finance user data from the OFX format that Google Finance provides exports in.

  3. my holdings not adding up shares owned

    Under My Holdings, it doesn't add up the total shares owned, only lists the first lot. Also doesn't calculate cost basis across all lots, only the first. Market value, day and total gain appear to be correct. Overall portfolio values is correct.

  5. Bring back the Yahoo quote API

    Look, if people were abusing the service, a simple solution would be use API keys (the keys could expire, be revoked, or reissued to curb abuse) tied to a single user account. When Yahoo offered a low-priced paid service for real-time quotes, I purchased it; I would purchase it again if it were low-priced and allowed me to import into Excel or another program. I'm sure most other regular users would be willing to purchase the service as well. I'd even pay a low-priced, monthly fee for historic quotes from Yahoo, and so would a lot of other people. Your…

  6. Now I can't add or delete stocks from my portfolios!!!

    Why won't you listen to the throngs of users begging for the classic version of Yahoo Finance? Is your team daft, stubborn or have delusions of cleverness? Are the users incapable of making an appropriate choice? Isn't the verge of Yahoo! irrelevance motivation enough to cater to the desires of long-term users? How about an answer to my e-mail address as a good will indication that you have some semblance of regard for long time users of your products and features?

  7. New Holdings view not showing average shares or cost basis

    In the new Holdings view, the main entry for each equity does not show the total number of shares and average cost basis -- instead it shows the figures for the most recent lot purchased. Please fix!

  8. I am very upset. I just moved my portfolio from Google to Yahoo and a mutual fund that I own for some reason isn't showing up under Yahoo

    I am upset. I just moved my portfolio from google to yahoo and a mutual fund that I own: American Century Investments Vista Fund Investor Class(MUTF:TWCVX) does not show up under Yahoo Finance. The ticker is TWCVX. This makes no sense since it's a mutual fund and if you go to Google Finance and type in TWCVX it shows up properly. Can you please fix this? I'd like to add this holding to my Yahoo portfolio but I can't because it's doesn't show up. Thank you.

  12. error in yield on 10-year Treasury (^tnx) on summary page.

    Today (11/13/17), Yahoo says the yield on the 10-year Treasury is 2.39%, down 0.1 or 0.29%. The math works ONLY if the yield is, in fact, 2.393%, which is what your charts say.

  14. Export of "Trade Date" from Portfolio is NOT Excel Compatible for DATE Format

    The format of "Trade Date" when exported is "YYYYMMDD"

    when put into an Excel cell and a DATE value is selected,
    there are NO matching formats for a value formatted as "YYYYMMDD"

    As a result, "########" appears in the cell(s).

    My main portfolio is very large
    and manual changing of format would not have been "pretty"

    I wasted about an hour (using WORD)
    to put the exported values into an Excel format.

    Obviously,
    I would greatly appreciate it if the exported format
    would be changed to an Excel format
    for my next export effort.

    Why not use a format something…

  16. Wrong fund name

    Hi, I work for the Liberty All-Star Equity Fund and the fund's name listed on Yahoo Finance is wrong. Yahoo is calling us Columbia Funds Trust XII. We have no affiliation. I've contacted Capital IQ and EDGAR. Capital IQ made the change but said Yahoo doesn't pull from them for our fund and Edgar said their data was correct and I needed to contact Yahoo. Could you please let me know how I can change this Fund name error? Thank you.

  17. Re-institute annualized return on portfolio entries

    Annualized return on portfolio entries. Its been asked to be put back dozens of times since you changed formats, and I recall it being ranked very high indeed. But nothing.

    Its the single biggest reason for tracking my portfolios in Yahoo.

    Thanks for reaching out.

    It appears that an advertisement is “covering” the option to “Delete Portfolio.” I’ve reached out to our Engineering Team to get this resolved. In the meantime, you can click the “x” next to the ad to remove it from your screen and you’ll then see the option to “Delete Portfolio.”

    Thank you!

  19. Several tips - things that don't function properly

    1. Make the value of my holdings two decimal places in the portfolio view. If I have fractional shares, the total value should be $4,567.89, not $4,567.8901. They stocks don't line up properly in portfolio view.
    2. What happened to my trade/transaction date? That does not show anymore in portfolio view. I see it is there and the column is checked, but it doesn't show any more.
    3. Let me go to MY defaul view, not your Summary View. And get rid of that freaking 4-step box every time I go to the view.
    4. I can't reorder my stocks…

  20. Chat portfolio overview

    Add a chat overview page where all portfolio stocks are visible as small charts at one glance. Allow for choosing the time spam (today, 5 days, etc) to display. It should be a tile layout. So one can easily see and compare the individual stock performances.
