I am using MMEX 1.27 and everyday I update my currency file (USD,£,euro,Malay ringitt) quite successfully.
Today I have tried and the am getting the return message 'Invalid value'  - please explain and advise me what I have done wrong
Thanks

It quite easy to check if online rates available. Just enter into any web browser address field

Code: Select all
http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=USDEUR=X&f=sl1&e=.csv
Then csv file should be downloaded like this
Code: Select all
USDEUR=X,0.9025

You don't need to use github. This resource for developers.
Seems that yahoo thanged API for download currencies rates.
This problem will be fixed only in the next release of mmex.
