    Not much I can do about that. Its corrupt data provided by the API (Data feed). Its missing the NAME of the stock and the code requires that data. I'd give it 24 (well, more like sometime on Monday) hours to see if they fix the issue. I just checked the FEED and it is missing, so that is why the error is being thrown.

    If you remember, bump this after the market opens on Monday. Looks like its only in the Public API Data feed as the LOOKUP (which is a different API) has the name and so does the Private API. I've seen this several times over the past decade and they always fix it eventually.

    Doesn't look like its been fixed yet (the API data feed still has empty data for the name field). The NAME of the stock is a required field. You are going to have to wait and see if they fix it. This is one of the unfortunate issues with using an unsupported API (which is still BY FAR the best free API available)

    Marked as Partial Fix as I've added some code into Stock Trader to compensate for missing "Name" data (which was required). I've removed the "required" dependency within the Data Writer and set a default value to "na" if no "Name" data is provided (mainly for custom code that some people may have).

    I've modified the actionBuyShares Method to check for NAME data and if that data is EMPTY, I then replace it with the Stock SYMBOL... ie, (AMD) has no NAME data, so it will now look like AMD (AMD) for the various displays throughout Stock Trader.

    Working like a charm now.
