Description Dawid Wróbel 2021-05-18 23:59:24 UTC

When importing a statement with new securities, they get created with Stooq source configured by default, which most of the cases will not work due proprietary symbol prefixes/suffixes which Stooq uses (e.g. AMD is AMD.US)

We should default to Yahoo Finance instead, now that it's been stable for over a year. We may also default to Yahoo Finance for any new currencies added. This may actually be necessary  if there's no distinction in code between the type of security at the time it gets created – and from a quick glimpse at the code, it seems to be the case.

1. Import a statement with new, previously unknown securities

1. Notice that Stooq is selected as a default source for online quotes
2. Notice that Stooq will most likely *not* work with the imported security's vanilla symbol.

1. KMM should default to Yahoo Finance, increasing the chances that the online quotes would work out of the box for any new security.
