Hi Kathy, no problem... as I mentioned, the charts will update overnight. Back about 2 years ago I had to way slow down the downloading process because Yahoo would throttle the data after a while. You might remember that the first stocks in the list had data but part way through the alphabet there was no data.

So now it takes about 8-10 hours to download to avoid throttling.

After that charts are generated and uploaded to the BMW web site. So, if you can wait until tomorrow (or really late tonight), the charts should all be available again.

I look at the charts once in a while to add a data point to other methods for finding and evaluating stocks. I looked at them back in 3/20 when there was a market drop at the start of the pandemic, and found that oil & gas stocks were particularly badly hit, so I bought some oil & gas ETFs which have done really well. I do use them here and there. Haven't heard from Jim in many years.
