A number of stocks are not showing the EOD chart bar for 1/3/2011. AAPL, ROVI, SWKS are some of them.. they appear to be stocks that I reviewed this past weekend. They are stuck on 12/31/2010. Other stocks, like BRCD, CHKP do show correctly for 1/3/2011. I have "Update Daily Data On Demand" set.. and I updated the priceing information. Rebooted etc. Logged into Fideltiy etc. Still same problem. Any ideas ?

I was talking to someone who had the same problem. After talking to Fidelity support, he found that there's a holidays file which has 1/3/2011 flagged as a holiday. Here are the steps to fix it...

Open the following file in an XML editor or notepad:

C:\Program Files\Fidelity Investments\Wealth-Lab Pro 6\Data\Markets.xml

In that file there is a section <Holidays>, that looks something like this:

<Holidays>
<dateTime>2004-01-01T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-01-19T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-02-16T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-04-09T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-05-31T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-06-11T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-07-05T00:00:00</dateTime>
<dateTime>2004-09-06T00:00:00</dateTime>
.....


He had me remove the line <dateTime>2011-01-03T00:00:00</dateTime>, exit
and restart WLP and all was good.

Thanks for this thread, but a question - how did you remove the offending entry? I've found the file and the line in question, but I'm unable to type over the data, unable to use the delete key, and don't see any menu that allows for deletion. I've opened the file using Microsoft's XML editor.

Also tried using Microsoft Word, but the data shows as read only.

Any help would be appreciated, as I've been holding for tech support for over 30 minutes.

Read the post #2 in this thread:

Strategy Monitor Scheduling, Streaming Ghost Bar, and Paper Trading

Hope that helps.

Thanks - got it resolved.

Was able to open it in wordpad and make the deletion. Originally, was given message that access was denied when I tried to save, but I had Wealth Lab running at the time. Once I closed Wealth Lab I was able to save and the issue is rectified. Thank you.
