What symbol is used in Quicken to track Ethereum as an investment?

Apparently there is none. Seems rather strange for an investment that has a market cap of 170 B dollars.

    Hello @sime3000,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community with your question.

    Ethereum (ETH) is not currently available in Quicken's security list being that it is a cryptocurrency. Unfortunately, cryptocurrency is not currently supported in Quicken.

    Therefore, I'd like to refer you to this active Idea post regarding this topic instead which is currently marked as Planned. If you would like to be notified of updates on this feature as they become available, you can go ahead and bookmark the thread by clicking the yellow star on the top-right corner.

    Alternatively, if this is not quite what you are looking for and wish to submit your own request for something more specific, then you can create your own idea post and add your vote

    Our Development and Product teams frequently use our idea posts in order to improve Quicken and implement new features requested by customers. 

    I apologize for not having better news to share with you, however, I hope this helps!

    Hello Anja,

    "Unfortunately, cryptocurrency is not currently supported in Quicken" That's not really true. You can get updated quotes for BitCoin via NYXBT. I (and others) are just looking for a way to get updated quotes in Quicken for *Ethereum* and this data is readily available from many sources. I suspect that it would take only a few minutes to add a a quote for Ethereum to Quicken.
    Nothing new about Crypto, it has been here for many years, it is not going away, its part of many people portfolios and it will continue to be.
    I've been using Quicken for years and I came to the conclusion long ago that no matter what they say, Quicken doesn't really give a crap about supporting Quicken users and Quicken only exists because there is little competition. I'd like to see that change - one way or the other.

    Note that Intuit has not owned Quicken for several years; Quicken Inc. is an independent company.

    I suggest you consider using a Google sheet.  For example:



    When we download the Google sheet as a CSV file, the file is formatted appropriately for import into Quicken: select File > File Import > Import security prices from CSV file...

    To learn more about Google sheets, I suggest you review: https://www.google.com/sheets/about/

    So sad. Been using Quicken daily since 1991 (yes, for 30 years, which should give you some idea of my age).

    Just bought my first batch of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and LiteCoin and am absolutely shocked that I can't automatically download cryptocurrency quotes other than for Bitcoin.

    I get the workarounds, i.e. CSV downloads, and will likely use them, but as many have mentioned, quotes are readily available in so many places it's hard to believe that Quicken with all of their vast resources can't figure out a direct :'( :'( download methodology.

    You can enter your security as ethereum and then go back to it and edit the security details. In the symbol field enter INDEX:ETHUSD200 and quicken should be able to retrieve quotes.

    And for Bitcoin Cash?
