Only partial data after market close

I'm not sure if this is a MT bug or a problem with the data feed.

To reproduce this bug, make a new entry for a Swiss equity, such as UBSG:VX and use Yahoo Finance as the source.

If you make the entry after the market has closed, only the following fields are written to MT: Last, Chng, Chg%, High, Low, Volume, Prv Cls. If you enter the same ticker during trading hours, all fields will be filled, including Name, 52Lo, 52Hi, MktCap etc.

it has nothing to do with when you enter stuff.  MT has 2 different ways to get the quotes from Yahoo - reading their HTML page for multi-symbol response, or a comma separated response (we call it API response).  Yahoo seems to disable API response for some symbols or exchanges, particularly non-US.  So we made MT get the HTML quotes for non-US symbols.  HTML page does not have the 52 week High/low and Market Cap.

The difference you saw is between entering UBSG.VX, which MT handles as a US stock since it does not have an MT suffix, and UBSG:VX, which MT knows is not a US symbol
