I'm having the same issue with stock prices. Turned up yesterday and still persists.

Re: Download Currency Rates Error 999

I can no longer download all my stock prices in a csv format file.  This is a major inconvience since all my formula were link dependent on the download.  Will this be fixed or is there a work around?

 

Help!

Not working since this morning.

An 100% free alternative for getting real time stock and fx prices in Excel is to use Deriscope.

Deriscope interfaces to both Yahoo Finance and Alpha Vantage. Right now that Yahoo service is broken, it still gets data from Alpha Vantage.
