    As @Bob has been predicting for some time now, it appears the Yahoo API has been terminated without warning.

    For reference:
    1. Conversation #19248672
    2. Has Yahoo suddenly today terminated its finance download API?
    Unfortunately the termination of the API now opens up another problem for those of us who were still chugging along with the system until now: How to pay out the existing portfolios of members who had investments when the system when down.

    As the API is now inaccessible, all stocks show a value of $0, which displays as such:

    Leaving our members unable to sell their holdings and recover their funds.

    @Bob is there any way you can think of to at least refund members of their "Total Invested" without doing each one manually? For forums such as ours with several hundred investors, it would be quite a tedious task.

    Cheers.

    There is no function for that, so its either manually or have a script developed that will automate the manual process.
