The future of fund updates?

Does anybody yet know if fund updates will continue, even if only
sporadically for certain funds?

I've been limiting my investing to funds that do still update - but
wondering if I am wasting my efforts if everything is going to get turned
off eventually.

I don't know for sure but think it's unlikely to continue. My M&S fund
hasn't updated for about a month now. I am using TrustNet to get manual
updates. Nowhere near as convenient but better than nothing.

From http://www.microsoft.com/money/faq.mspx:

(This applies to the US versions of Money, so it is unknown for how long
UK Money users will have access to the Online Services. Certainly, after
31 January 2011 there will be no access because the services will no
longer exist.)

When do online services expire?

Per the End User License Agreement for Money Plus Deluxe, Premium and
Home & Business products, online services continue for two years after
initial activation or until 1/31/2011, whichever comes first.

What happens when my online services have expired?

When online services expire, Money no longer supports online quotes nor
direct online banking (including bill-pay). Money can still process bank
statements imported from your bank’s Web site (if available), and quotes
can be manually updated.

Can I get quotes after online services expire?

No. Online quotes are part of the online services. Users can still
manually update quote prices once online services have expired.

Money will still be able to get quotes via OFX. I would not be
surprised if somebody made an application to read another quote
server and produced an OFX file with quotes in it. Also, some
brokers and fund companies put quote info for securities that you
hold into the OFX files they already provide.

Note that http://www.quotetracker.com/qsources.shtml gets info from
various sources. It used to be a free application that did screen
scraping from the quote data supplied by the customer's own broker,
and then use that info as it's data. It apparently has official
relationships with some brokers, so it may not have to screen-scrape
those. It would be interesting to combine his technology with
production of OFX files to feed to Microsoft Money.
