I just upgrade to 2016, (from the old 2011) and I try to load all the historical prices of my mutual funds investments.
but Quicken downloads just 1 month of data and not the full history!
what can I do?

    The pattern of available downloaded quotes is: daily for the prior 30 days, weekly from then over the preceding 11 months ( to 1 year ago), then end-of-month values for four more years for a total of five years of data available.



    It is possible to import prices via csv files for any period of time. (That also would still have been available to you with QW2011.)

    Jerome, why do you need historical quote data? Did you not convert your Q2011 file to Q2016?

    Did you request a 5-year download of historical quotes, or just a standard download quotes? I've never gotten a definitive understanding of how far back the standard download quotes feature reaches.

    I upgrade because the 2011 had issues with this loading process for some of my mutual funds (not all) and completly stop working recently for all the online updates.


    No choice, I have to upgrade, and I want to fill the missing historical data.


    There is no reason to not have more history than just 1 month.


    I try various options, including loading 5years of data, but this option appear to impact the references indices, not all the funds etc...

    How many funds do you need to load historical data for?

    mmm... 15 I think.
    I just intercept the HTTP request generated by Quicken, in the request, the last parameter send is:
    range=month
    and the result is the quotes for my funds. We can see that the month parameter is the one which limit the historical prices, but there is no option to change this

    When downloading old quotes.

    The "Month" and under gives you daily quotes.
    The "Year" gives you weekly.
    The "Two Year" and "Five Year" gives you monthly.

    loading historical prices with the option up to 5 years work only for the securities and is not applied to the mutual funds.

    k guys, using Fiddler I setup a rule to change the parameter sent from ;range=month to ;range=5years and I have 5 years of data now.

    I know this option, but not working for me. this option is applicable to securities only, not mutual funds.

    The option applies to both securities and mutual funds in my experience and works for QW2014 and all prior versions.  I can't comment about any QW2016 issue underlying your observations; I haven't heard of any such issue.  Are you up-to-date with the QW2016 releases (R8)?  Your fix of fiddling with the range specification should not be required, but that stuff is also above my pay grade.

    Note I the above test was done with Quicken 2016 R8.  It has to be something other than "mutual funds".

    My only thought is that since you did come from a pretty old version is that maybe something is hanging around that is causing this and using the QCleanUI procedure to remove Quicken and reinstall might help.

    For what is worth, I looked at the request for downloading historical prices in Quicken 2016 R8 with Fiddler and it worked as expected.  As in depending on what I selected in the pull down menu in Quicken, it changed the range parameter in the request.  And that of course changed what range of quotes were returned.

    BTW for what it worth you said that you changed the range parameter from month to 5Year using Fiddler and it worked.  Notice that you changed nothing that said "include mutual funds" or something like that.  There is simply a list of symbols and the time range.  So I fail to see how you changing the time range could only affect mutual funds.  (For people that don't know Fiddler is an excellent proxy server that can be used to monitor network traffic.)

    Here is a request with a Index, an ETF, and a Fund.
    stk.0.sym=INDEX:INX;stk.1.sym=VIG;stk.2.sym=VPCCX;range=2years

    thanks for your time. the behavior still the same for me. and was the same with quicken 2011.
    the gui which ask for how many time I want to download my prices, only the securities are listed, not my mutual funds.
    when I select 5 years and click to download, with fiddler, I can see that Quicken is asking only the security listed in the popup dialog box and for the 5 years. all the others quotes, my mutual funds are not updated at all during this process.

    the only process which updates the mutual funds is selecting update > quotes. and here there is no option and only 1 month is downloaded.

    What is the security type for your mutual funds?

    oh... I checked your fiddler data, you dont have any mutual fund in your test list.
    stk.0.sym=INDEX:INX;stk.1.sym=VIG;stk.2.sym=VPCCX;range=2years
    you should have at least 1 MUTUAL:RBF595 for example.

    So make sure you select the mutual fund has the exchange in the setup of your security.

    Here my setup
    if I change the exchange from mutual funds to toronto and the type to stock.
    Then I can select the security in the option to download 5years of data (but its not working because the code is a mutual fund and not a toronto stock), else its not listed.and only 1 month loaded.

    OK that is different.  And it sort of goes back to what I said before.
    When you look at the historical prices dialog besides the time range there is the a list of securities.  Clearly if the mutual funds are not listed there for you to select you won't be able to get prices for them.

    For the securities to show up in that list there are a few things that are needed. (From the security list)
    1) You have to own it or you have to select it to be on the watch list.
    2) You have to select that you want to download quotes.
    3) You can't "hide" it.

    But from what you are saying your list changes depending on the time frame that you select.  I have never seen that before.  BTW I'm using Quicken 2016 R8 Deluxe version.  That is the lowest version of Quicken that will download quotes, so it can't be a function of the "flavor" of Quicken.

    If I have this all correct that the list is varying depending on the time frame selected, the only thing I can do is go back to the suggestion of using the QCleanUI procedure, and reinstall Quicken 2016.

    OK I think we have finally hit the difference.

    Do you have the Canadian version of Quicken?

    If so that explains the difference.
    We (everyone else posting is using the US version).

    Boy I miss the fact that the old forum would have the user select what version of Quicken they are using (including US vs Canadian)

    With multiple currencies enabled.

    The Canadian version gives extras (like the history of currency exchange rates) and is lacking other things like this.

    BTW knowing all that we do now, what I suggest is that you make another post requesting that the Canadian version allow downloading of mutual funds for more than a month.  And mark it as an Idea.  That is how Quicken Inc is getting their suggestions.

    You should also put in a link to this thread.
