Am I the only person getting bad bid-ask quotes for options from Yahoo for the past week or so? I haven't seen anybody else posting about it here, unless I somehow missed it. I can use Google as an alternative source, but Google doesn't provide quotes for options on ETFs, and so is only partially useful as a backup plan.
On an investing website that I follow, somebody who pulls quotes directly from within Google docs said that Yahoo recently changed its access URL from http to https, but there were a mix of confirming and contradictory responses.


Any insights?

PS: I bypass the general function and use smfGetYahooOptionQuote for quotes from Yahoo and smfGetGoogleOptionQuote for quotes from Google. They are versions from a couple of months ago.

Without specifics, I have nothing to look at.

Make sure you have your Internet Options set to always get a fresh copy of
a web page, and try the smfForceRecalculation macro if prices don't look
right.

Note -- smfGetOptionQuotes() is just a front end to the specific functions
like smfGetYahooOptionQuote() and smfGetGoogleOptionQuote(), so you would
eventually be using them anyway.

I haven't seen the http to https change here...
