    I have a spreadsheet I wrote a few years ago for a friend that keeps track of her portfolio prices. She just entered the symbol and the number of shares she held and it filled in the company name and the current value. I had small VBA routines with buttons to click to retrieve the current prices and to compare with and retrieve previous close prices. All the data came from moneycentral.msn.com but now, although it recognises the symbols it doesn't retrieve any prices. There's a message that says "This stock symbol does not exist or is not covered by StockTwits." Not sure who "StockTwits" are but the name is certainly apt. All it seems to cover now is the NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX. Has anyone else struck this, and do you know of another site where I can retrieve the data via a VBA routine. The VBA code copied the web page into a hidden sheet in my spreadsheet and extracted the data there. From what I can see, Yahoo only has the latest price, and the ASX website has too much peripheral guff.
