What to do when fund updates are turned off?

As a user of Money 2005 UK, the end of Nationwide background banking is
annoying, but the software is at least still usable for the moment.

But as I have an investment portfolio, Money will become useless to me once
fund and stock updates are turned off.

US users can turn to Quicken, but what can UK users do if we need a solution
for portfolio management? There is no Quicken UK. I have looked at
Moneydance - but this only allows qif import of accounts - and even that is
very limited.

Are there any other solutions on the horizon?

We are back to where we were prior to M2004 when there was no online share
updates.

Unless you are into day trading or have other reasons for needing absolutely
up to the minute prices, one perhaps ought to take the view that shares are
a long term investment and that sitting down on a Saturday am with the
Business Section of your favorite broadsheet is good enough for indicative
price trends!

If you really need a real time update of stocks then there are plenty of
other sites that will give you an accurate valuation, unlike Money, where
the prices are at a 15/20 minute delay minimum. I use ADVFN.com, which gives
real time prices but there are others. Both Yahoo and Google offer portfolio
valuations on a 15 minute delay. Trustnet does a good portfolio valuation
for Unit trusts/Oics.
