Working Ticker Symbol for BitCoins?

Does anyone have a good working Ticker Symbol to track Bitcoins in Windows Quicken?

I have seen INDEX:NYXBT, but that doesn't seem to work.

I am looking for Ticker Symbol that will provide the actual SPOT value for a Bitcoin.

  • Hello @Ronald Westman, 

    Thank you for reaching out to Quicken Community. There may not be a Ticker Symbol that will provide the exact value for Bitcoin. The only other workaround that some users have found helpful is INDEX:NYXBT, as stated above. The reason being is, Quicken does not yet support cryptocurrency tracking. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. 

    For more information about this particular INDEX:NYXBT please visit the link below.

    Again we apologize for the inconvenience. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Of course not the answer I was hoping for.

    My confusion is this: Etherum (another Cryptocurrency) can be tracked by Quicken using:

    INDEX:ETHUSD200

    This provides active updates.
    Why would Etherum be tracked, but not Bitcoin?

    The third-party quote provider Quicken utilizes appears to support a similar variety of Bitcoin indices.  For example, INDEX:NQBTCS

    I would not refer to any of these quotes as providing a spot price.
  • Hello Sherlock, INDEX:NQBTCS looks like it is working.

    Thank you
