    Dear Yahoo Finance,

    Same here. A simple symbol search for mutual funds in Canada is difficult.

    For Example, searching for this code: RBF559 won't show up. Instead I have to find another way
    and typing in this into the search bar"
    https://ca.finance.yahoo.com/lookup/mutualfund?s=rbc&t=A&b=150&c=25.

    Then I find that the code I am looking for is actually, F0CAN05OYJ.TO

    OR I have to type in the name of the actual fund, "RBC International Index Curr N"

    I should be able to just look up the actual symbol.

    The reason why I use yahoo finance is because the layout is the nicest and the best user experience, but the fundamental search logic is broken.

    Other finance apps are able to search a simple symbol it it would just show up.

    So complicated for a layman, why?

    Thanks.
