Automatic import of securities prices CSV on loading Quicken

I wrote a script that runs periodically and creates a CSV file with the prices of several cryptocurrencies that I own and have had to create custom Quicken securities for.

Ideally, Quicken would simply be able to pull just about any crypto price in real-time from a site like CoinMarketCap, but this doesn't seem to be any sort of a priority. So, I am stuck using this script and manually importing the CSV whenever I start Quicken.

Would it be at all possible to provide an option to enable the automatic import of a securities CSV file price update upon launching Quicken? Or even have it refresh the data silently from the file in the background periodcally? Say every 5 or 10 minutes, or even a custom interval.

As a software engineer, this seems like it would be a simple addition. It would be much appreciated.
