The Yahoo web site _does_ know about my mutual fund.  I tried all the
other american vendors but a price was never returned.  Your reply says I
need to enter the exact symbol.  I am not allowed to do that anywhere. 
The drop down windows only allow me to select by fund name not symbol.
The symbol is IAALX and the name is IDEX Asset Allocation Growth.  Can you
get a return through the price editor?
