How do I change a security's ticker symbol?

You need to enter the ticker symbol for securities whose prices you want to download. Be aware that if you have more than one security with the same ticker symbol, Quicken updates all of them, even if you ask to update only one. If you want to prevent this, you can edit the extra securities to remove their ticker symbols.


  1. Click the Investing tab.
  2. Click the Tools button, and choose Security List
  3. Click the name of the security whose ticker symbol you want to change. 
  4. Click Edit Security Details
  5. In the Symbol field, delete the old ticker symbol and type the new one. 
  6. Click OK

    • What happens now?
      Quicken prompts you as to whether you want to keep the price history associated with the old ticker symbol, or delete the history and start over. The recommended procedure is to keep the price history.

  7. When Quicken prompts you as to how you want to handle the price history, select Copy quotes from [old ticker] to [new ticker].
