Preferred Stock/Bond Pricing

On April 3, I began to have difficulty with Quicken not updating bond pricing (using CUSIP numbers since I think that there are no symbols) and preferred stocks. Surprisingly, I was able to remedy the problem with the preferred stocks by changing the symbols to a made-up symbol and then changing them back to the actual symbols, but the same "fix" did not work with the bonds. How do I get the bond quotes updated as they did before April 3?

    I should add that my version is and that preferred stock price updating worked fine before April 3/4 and bond pricing with CUSIP numbers worked on and off, but not is seems to be just off.

    Hi Sarah,

    I am using Quicken Premier version R26.17, Build The problem is with any bond that does not have a symbol. An example would be JPMORGAN CHASE & CO DEP SHS REPSTG 1/10TH PFD SER, which Quicken shows in the symbol field as 6812394. The CUSIP number though is 46625HHA1. Since April 3, I am not getting any quotes for any security that does not have a "normal" stock symbol. Thank you.

    Prices come from one of three methods.  The first is from Quicken Inc's service provider.  And for them to provide the quote this has to be one that has a "normal stock symbol".

    The second way that prices are retrieved is part of the download from the financial institution.  The prices for the securities you hold with that financial institution should be sent in the OFX information Quicken gets when downloading from that financial institution.

    The last way is any manually entered prices.

    You, my friend, are a genius. Thank you. I tried downloading the transactions from Schwab and voilà, there was an updated price. April 3 must have been the last date I downloaded from Schwab. Now, the question just turns to why can't Quicken provide the updated bond pricing along with updated stock pricing?
