Hi there,

I just transferred from WLP to WLD.
I did pay my subscription and also use the migrate tool which worked like a charm.
Since I'm using EOD data, I utilize Yahoo Finance as the data provider.

My strategy has this code snippet:
Please log in to see this code.

This generates an error.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

The Migrator tool does not convert Fidelity DataSets yet. That .SPX is an invalid (unrecognized) symbol at Yahoo. Take a look at this helpful thread:

Provider Symbol Cross-Reference (WLP Decommission)

Appreciate you giving descriptive titles to your posts in the future. "WLD - question" was a suboptimal choice. Would you agree with me on that "GetExternalSymbol(.SPX) generates an error in WLD" summarizes the problem better?

Thank you very much. I was able to figure it out. Should be ^GSPC.
Thank you to the Wealth-Lab support team for all their efforts throughout the years. I've been a dedicated client for many years and this will ocntinue!

Thanks again
