HYPTUS Watchlist Price Update fails if shares are delisted

Postby HillManMill » January 9th, 2020, 10:31 am

I was doing a price update on my HYPTUS this morning and found that when pressing the "get Yahoo Prices" button the prices entries would be cleared but not updated and the message box "yahoo price scrape has failed please run again". As this happened several times I did a bit of exploring and found that GNK had been delisted [is that the correct term?] and also that by removing GNK from my watchlist price scrape runs.

Perhaps some you already know this but thought I would share in case there are others how have puzzled over this issue.

GNK were taken over and so ceased to exist. The other possibilities are if a share is taken private and so delists, or if it changes its ticker. That ought to be taken care of automatically, but you need to be aware of it. It is something that you have to keep abreast of and take appropriate action.
