Why doesn't Quicken recognize the MSCI EAFE index symbol MXEA? It fails when I enter it directly or as INDEX:MXEA.

    It's probably because Quicken has not purchased that data from their supplier.

    However, you can download historic data for the MSCI indices from 
    https://www.msci.com/end-of-day-data-search
    Click on the name of the index to get the data. This requires a browser that works with Flash, i.e. something other than Chrome.

    Once downloaded, you should be able to use Excel to convert it to a Quicken compatible CSV format and import to Quicken.
