updating currencies and stocks is failing

Post by mr108 »

Hi,

Suddenly I cannot update the currencies exchange rates and stocks from the internet - the Error is "Cannot get data from WWW"
Her is the screenshot: https://s5.postimg.org/4lt1vbmd3/mmex_error.jpg
My internet connection works OK.

How to fix it?

Thanks

I tried another version - mmex-1.4.0-ALPHA-3 - and getting the same error message.

Checked the firewall and antivirus and neither is blocking it.

What's wrong???

Hi

I am been having the same problem with updating currencies for a few days now. Same error message. What has changed and how to fix it?

I do not use the stock price part of MMEX though.

I believe it may be to do with this?

Perhaps the developers of MMEX could change the source for getting this info - Google and Morningstar are also providing it.

Any way to bring this problem to the attention of the developers?
Are they frequently looking through the posts on this forum?

I tested the Android version and there you can chose from what service you get the price updates.

Getting the updates from Yahoo is not working.
Currencies exchange rates from Morningstar does not work either.
But updating the stock prices from Morningstar works OK.

this update doesn't work for me either, because you cannot enter the courses manually, a solution would be urgently needed.
regards Renato use MMEX since 2009

I found following free services for updating currencies and stock prices but since I'm not a programmer I don't know if that can be used.
Hopefully MMEX developers can look into this soon - THANKS!

I tested again with the latest version of Android MMEX and it can now update both currencies exchange rates and stock prices.

Exchange rates are updated with Fixer

http://fixer.io/
Fixer is a free API for current and historical foreign exchange rates published by the European Central Bank.
The rates are updated daily around 4PM CET every working day.

although this one https://www.alphavantage.co/ could be better since it can provide the cryptocurrencies prices as well

and
Stock prices are updated with Morningstar.
and https://www.alphavantage.co/ is also providing stock prices


Perhaps same thing could be done with the desktop app?
